Hello and welcome to our Digital Progression Conference

I am disappointed that we haven’t been able to see you in person on campus for our annual summer Progression Conference for another year. However, we’ve put together some great, informative sessions available online and on demand that we hope you will find of benefit for you and your students. 

It’s been an unusual year to say the least! And we acknowledge how different it has been for you and your students. This is a good point at which to say we’re here to support you and your students as we move towards the next academic year, and to offer our ongoing support to you all. 

Enjoy the sessions we’ve recorded, and please do get in touch if the content generates questions that you’d like answered – we'll happily get you the answers you need. 

We’ve recently launched our Teachers Resources on Demand platform so please feel free to browse the content on there such as presentations to download, videos to watch, quizzes and activities on topics such as student finance, study skills, next steps and much more. 

On behalf of the Schools and Colleges Liaison and Widening Access teams we wish you all a good summer break and look forward to working with you, hopefully face to face, in the new academic year.
