Whilst ‘free’ higher education enables many more previously disadvantaged learners to access tertiary studies than ever before, unacceptably high numbers drop out along the way. Holistic student support has been proven to improve retention and throughput, converting massive public investment in higher education into graduates. Most of the NPO and corporate entities that provide this vital support to students have formed a community of practice, sharing knowledge and lessons learned. This conference is about unpacking lots of issues directly relevant to support students for success, drawing upon the wealth of expertise and experience within the community of practice.
Join us for a rich time of knowledge sharing, reflection and new ideas as to how we can better support students to succeed in higher education.
