Event description

Description

This half day training session focuses on inclusive student engagement, specifically looking at how to effectively engage students from under-represented groups in your activities. Using live case studies from the group, we will share the knowledge we have built up over the past 11 years, supporting attendees to audit their own initiatives and introduce changes to reduce barriers to engagement.

This session is for anyone looking to engage students who are typically under-represented in student activies - particularly students from BAME or low income backgrounds, and disabled students. Our knowledge is built up from supporting students to take part in social action, but it is relevant to anyone who works in a student engagement capacity - in student services, students' unions or elsewhere.

Overview

1. Introduction to diversity and inclusion- a brief introduction to diversity and inclusion and its importance in effective social action and volunteering.

2. Auditing your programmes - taking a step back and analysing the accessibility of your own programmes.

3. Touch points and barriers- Using one of your programmes an example we'll do some hands on work looking at:
a. Reviewing messaging and outreach
b. Reducing barriers to application
c. Reducing barriers to participation

4. Wrap up and Evaluation: How will you implement these interventions, and how will you know if they have been successful?
