Our steering group member who focuses on parental engagement in careers education, Tim Roe has launched a new podcast through the Pursue network. The network is open to all those engaging in Higher Education who self-identify as coming from a Working Class background, or align with our cause. The ethos behind the group is to share thoughts and feelings around the culture of being working class, and the richness – and barriers – stemming from that. We lobby with an honest voice to enhance our endeavours towards creating equity in the education sector.
Pursue: Practitioners from Underrepresented Sections United through Education
PURSUE is a group for and by Practitioners in Widening Participation at any level. Anyone who is committed to challenge, change and champion the experiences and voice of those from Working Class backgrounds in Higher Education is invited to join. You can get in touch via the contact page on their website.
The first episode of The Open Circle podcast is available now and you can listen to it below. All episodes can also be found on our Pods page, which also includes the Parent Power Oldham pod.
The pod is not aimed at students, as such the language can at times might stray into post-watershed territory.
