Belonging, Learning and Working: theory and practice in supporting students with disabilities and specific learning difficulties

Gartree and Rutland Suite, 4th Floor, Charles Wilson Building
University of Leicester
9.30am – 2pm Wednesday 27th October 2010 (lunch included)

The University of Leicester’s Student Retention and Success Project (part of the national HEFCE/Paul Hamlyn Foundation What Works? Student Retention and Success Programme) is researching the factors that affect students’ feeling of belonging within higher education, including the experience of students with disabilities and specific learning difficulties.

 The seminar will present the project’s findings together with an overview, including the rationale and student feedback, of two areas of practical provision at Leicester designed to support such students’ learning and wider employability:

  • Online interactive study guides
  • Access to Employability programme

The seminar will also provide delegates with opportunities to reflect on these in the context of their own institutions and to network with others.
