Panel Discussion: Delivering an Inclusive Turing Scheme that Enhances Social Mobility

Supporting disadvantaged students and driving social mobility is one of the core aims of the Turing Scheme and a key pillar of the funding criteria for any project. In this session sector leaders will assess:

  • How do we ensure the “levelling up” agenda is successfully embedded within the Turing Scheme?
  • How can an effective Turing Scheme project translate into tangible outcomes for disadvantaged young people?
  • How can the institutions ensure that their programmes effectively engage with “hard to reach” students?
