At this event, the project team, Professor Claire Cameron, Hanan Hauari and Katie Hollingworth, will discuss the key findings of their research, as well as showcasing film and podcast content from the project.

There will also be a collaborative participatory arts performance from The Verbatim Project and a Q&A session with care-experienced young people.  

About the report

'Care-experienced learners in HE: Facilitating completion of degree programmes' explores the student experience in higher education alongside institutional arrangements, from the perspective of current and former care-experienced students, to encourage, or discourage, care-experienced students to follow their chosen study programme. 

The project has drawn upon a review of widening participation literature and a survey of higher education institutional arrangements, services and participatory approaches employed with current and former university students who were care-experienced to explore university life. Working together, researchers and participants analysed data, co-creating core narratives which reflected lived experiences.
