NEON (the National Education Opportunities Network) are running four 'Supporting Practice' events in Autumn 2012 on the new widening participation toolkits.

The events will be the first opportunity for practitioners to see the toolkits and discuss how they could be used with those who produced them.

The toolkits have been produced for HEFCE by The Progression Trust, a social enterprise with many years experience in the area of widening participation.

The Toolkits draw on the Higher Education Academy’s new ‘Widening access, student retention and success’ national programmes archive’.
