Tackling disadvantage in university applications

University guide for studentsUniversity guide for staff
Research commissioned by Aimhigher Kent and Medway (AHKM) in 2010, identified that widening participation students may be disadvantaged in the university application process, when compared to some of their peers. Additionally, the wealth of information on the internet can be overwhelming if students are not given the proper guidance and support to work through it. AHKM decided to produce a guide for students which addresses some of these gaps, as well as a guide for the staff in schools and colleges who support these students through the process. I was tasked with researching and writing these guides and as part of this I consulted and interviewed widely in order to both identify the main areas of weakness, and to recognise best practice. At the time of writing this, the guides are being printed, ready to send out to schools and colleges in early September. Download electronic versions here:

    to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile ..

  2. You’ll find there fundamental configurations for people:
    everybody, friends, and friends of friends.
    I will also explain to you howto accomplish
    that. Windows 7 purports to repair many of the incompatibilty issues observed in Vista.
