Resources, Insights, Programmes and Events to support positive change in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)
As EDI becomes more embedded in institutional values and strategy and becomes more of a measure for the student experience, institutional interest in creative responses to tackling inequality is growing.
We’ve pulled together a selection of insights, resources, programmes and events to help you navigate the EDI landscape, share learning and advance evidence-based good practice. Find out more
Welcome to the November 2019 Update
This month we launch the Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education Framework, highlight the national results of three of our student surveys and share a series of videos for supporting care leavers in higher education.
The Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education Framework was launched this month, developed in partnership with EEUK, IOEE, ISBE, SFEDI and the QAA. This is a resource to help institutions provide effective activities and experiences so that students can identify what is involved in being enterprising and entrepreneurial, helping them to navigate their future careers. Stuart Norton, Senior Adviser at Advance HE, introduces the new framework in his blog ‘The trouble with employability’. Andy Penaluna, Professor Emeritus at University of Wales Trinity Saint David, who has made a large contribution to the framework, discusses the topic of future proofing higher education in his blog ‘Enterprise thinking on the future of HE’. Further content exploring enterprise and entrepreneurship will continue to be published over the coming weeks and can be found on a new guidance page. Continue reading AdvanceHE Newsletter
A manifesto for UK science
Science and innovation drive the economy, create jobs and enrich our society. Whether it is Brexit, climate change, healthcare or the economy, all of the major issues that voters care about are underpinned by science, research and innovation. If the UK is to rise to these challenges, it is vital that the next government steps up its commitment and equips UK Science with the tools and support it needs to unlock its full potential.
The Royal Society has published a manifesto outlining key steps the next government must take in order to harness the potential of science to power a cutting edge UK.
