Students at Risk: sharing systems and practice

Friday 7 October 2011, 11am-3.30pm

184-192 Drummond Street, LONDON NW1 3HP

AMOSSHE presented a practice-focused day, during which colleagues were invited to share and compare current systems and practice on responding to situations where students are deemed to be “at risk”.  Experts from across the sector chaired, presented, and facilitated the discussion sessions with a solutions focused approach.  The event was chaired by Dr. Annie Grant, Dean of Students and Director of Student Services at the University of East Anglia.  Working groups were facilitated by

  • Sally Olohan, Director of Student Services at Nottingham Trent University
  • Julie Walkling, Director of Student Services at Anglia Ruskin University
  • Lawrence Wilson, Head of Student Services at University of Wales, Newport. 

All of the event contributors have extensive experience in handling critical issues in their current and previous roles in UK HE, and many have contributed to research and publications in this area.

The event provided an opportunity to:

  • Share and compare current practice and policies
  • Discuss “live” issues in assessing and managing risk
  • Identify common emerging challenges that may require sector attention

This was all be done within a 'safe' space where we encourage colleagues to speak freely; Chatham House rules applied.
