Event description

Description

This is a free, invite-only event for teachers and advisers in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Advancing Access aims to support the progression of young people from non-traditional backgrounds on to selective universities and courses. To do this, we provide free CPD resources and events to help you advise students making their Key stage 4, Key stage 5 and university decisions. In partnership with the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Collaborative Outreach Programme (DANCOP), we also deliver bespoke CPD sessions to teachers and advisers in schools and colleges in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. This event is delivered collaboratively between Advancing Access, DANCOP and the following universities:


  • University of Birmingham
  • University of Cambridge
  • University of Derby
  • Loughborough University
  • University of Manchester
  • University of Nottingham
  • Nottingham Trent University
  • University of Oxford
  • University of Sheffield
  • University of Warwick


Each university will attend the event to deliver sessions on a range of topics including:

  • supporting students making their Key stage 4, Key stage 5 and university decisions
  • admissions processes, the use of contextual information and entry requirements for competitive courses
  • personal statements and academic references
  • raising aspirations and parental engagement
  • pathways to higher education.

This event is designed to be an interactive and informative day for all involved. You will have the opportunity to share ideas, reflect on current experiences and discuss best practice. You should leave the event having learned something new with a view to developing how your school raises aspirations and facilitates progression to selective universities. With so many university representatives present, you will also make new links with your local leading universities who provide outreach activities for your students.
