14/12/2017Highlights from the 'Moving on Up' Research Report Launch

Thank you to the guests who attended the launch of the Moving on Up: Pathways of Care Leavers and Care-Experienced Students Into and Through Higher Education on 29th November at the House of Commons.

The report, which was commissioned by NNECL and written by Dr Neil Harrison from the University of West of England, provides an important contribution to our understanding of the experience of care leavers who enter and progress through higher education.  The launch event included Dr Neil Harrison presenting the key findings and recommendations from the research followed by networking with practitioners and leaders working in the sector.

We are very grateful to Rosie Duffield MP for hosting the event and to the University of Winchester, Canterbury Christchurch and the Kent & Medway Progression Federation for sponsoring the event and the printing of the report. 

The full report is available to download from the NNECL website here.  Dr Neil Harrison’s presentation video from the launch can be viewed on the NNECL YouTube channel here.
