Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF): Inviting applications for ‘Capacity Building Training on Equitable Access to Higher Education’ to equip managers in higher education institutions in Europe and Asia to be able to advance equitable access & success in their institutions.

Funding brief: The ASEF Capacity Building Training on Equitable Access to Higher Education builds on the ideas and policy recommendations developed during the 7th ASEF Rectors’ Conference and Students’ Forum (ARC7) in Bucharest, Romania, from 11-15 May 2019. The policy recommendations developed both by the rectors and the students underlined the need to ensure equitable access to higher education (HE). The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), the National Education Opportunities Network (NEON), and The University of Edinburgh are taking action and organising a capacity building training for university managers on this matter. The Capacity Building Training is organised in conjunction with World Access to Higher Education Day (WAHED) 2019, taking place on 26 November 2019 at the University of Edinburgh.

The aim of the Asef capacity building training?
The overall aim of the training is to equip managers in higher education institutions in Europe and Asia to be able to advance equitable access & success in their institutions. The training is designed to:
● Increase participants’ understanding of the evidence and theory where access, success and participation in HE are concerned and get familiar with global institutional practice in these fields;
● Assist participants to develop action plans which they can implement in their home institution to improve access and success in HE for disadvantaged groups;
● Build an Asia-Europe community of managers and practitioners who can achieve a step change in equitable access to HE by 2030.

They will learn how HE institutions have effectively addressed challenges in the field of equitable access and success in HE.

● Developing the skills and knowledge to change the access and success landscape in their institution: Participants will develop their own action plans, which they can implement in their home institution to improve access and success in HE for disadvantaged groups.
