In this session we explore the issues that we have confronted, and some of the lessons we have learnt in Scotland, in tackling widening access work across a broad scope. Much of the impetus for this activity began through community based partnerships, however, it has now lead to major engagement with 21 of Scotland’s colleges and partnerships with several of the major unions which has opened doors into workplaces that were previously closed. We look at how it is possible to work at scale with networks of local partners and discuss how the activity aligns and interacts with important policy drivers for widening access in Scotland.
