Webinar - Barriers to progressionThis webinar covers barriers to progression in general for young people and in particular to Higher Education. It was produced by the Southern Collaborative Networks, created by Next Steps Cornwall and presented by Morag Walling.
Morag Walling delivered the webinar on 14th Janaury 2016 and her experience comes with a background linking aspects of the school curriculum, working directly with students in the areas of careers, work experience and employer engagement in schools for 10 years. She is now supporting students as part of a careers service in a university context. Morag has a strategic perspective having been a senior manager in local authorities and a unique insight into the journey young people make through education into employment. This unique perspective has fuelled Morag’s interest in the topic of “barriers” to progression both real and perceived and she has been able to publish research undertaken as part of her MA in Careers Guidance to shed new light on some of these issues which is now being taken further by others in the field.
