The Sanctuary Group
A Practitioners Network: Access to Further and Higher Education for Refugees and People Seeking Asylum
Practitioners with an interest in refugees’ access to Further and Higher Education in Scotland are invited to join a sociable speed-networking style gathering. We will be able to meet and talk in small groups, hopefully build cross-sectoral informal connections, and explore how we can collectively shape the future focus and activities of this new Community of Practice group.
SCAPP and Universities of Sanctuary hosted two events during 2020 and 2021 for widening access and participation colleagues across Scotland who have an interest in improving access to Higher Education for refugees and people seeking asylum. Interest and enthusiasm for a community of practice was expressed at both events.
We are now building on this interest and will be launching this network with this event on Monday 27 September 2021 2pm – 3pm.
SCAPP (Scotland’s Community of Access and Participation Practitioners) is a cross-sectoral professional practitioners network supporting colleagues in Scotland engaged in widening access and participation activity, evaluation and research.
Universities of Sanctuary is an initiative that seeks to support universities and colleges to develop a culture and a practice of refugee welcome and to do this in a networked way, with other further and higher education institutions.
