The presentation is built on research informed practice arising from two projects:

  • A SRHE funded project which considered how HEI’s could approach the post Layer landscape requiring embedding of universal design for learning. A key finding related to the requirement for various services to work together and to communicate the big picture of support available to students.
  • An approach by Leadley-Meade and Goodwin to offering pre entry support to students which included providing them with information about how to access a wide range of professional services in order to increase their chances of academic success.

Working together between professional services is possibly easier than creating equitable and productive working relationships between professional services staff and academics. This presentation considers how to make all these things work in ways which enable staff to support each other and offer students excellent joined up easy to access services
