Making University Truly Accessible

PURSUE would like to invite colleagues and supporters to our latest online event on 10th December.  The purpose of this event is twofold, to explore the discussion theme of ‘Making university truly accessible to working class people’ and to launch our new PURSUE podcast ‘The Open Circle’.  This is a new strand to our work, in which we explore cutting edge topics of discussion on how to tackle inequalities in HE/ED/society.


We hope that the podcast will act as a mechanism to share and champion good practice across the sector through sharing the lived experiences of our guests.  Thus far, we have interviewed a diverse array of guests including Lemn Sissay, Tony Collins (Professor of Social History), Simon Hughes (Author) and PURSUE contributors.

In order to launch ‘The Open Circle’, we will be delivering a live example of the type of discussion covered through the podcast.  Our guests for this session are listed below:

          Andy Griffith http://www.malit.org.uk/education-consultants/andy-griffith/ – Educational Consultant

          Jamie Bytheway – Head of Widening Participation at Manchester NHS Foundation Trust

           Robert Powell – Director, Pro Bono & Corporate Responsibility, London Weil, Gotshal & Manges (London) LLP

          Guy Christiansen – Director, Lancashire Youth Challenge

Get in touch to Join us on 10th December 10:00-12:00
