IAG Practitioner Group Online Meeting

The first IAG Practitioner Group meeting of this academic year took place on 30th September online and was well attended by college and HEI partner representatives.

The meeting began with a presentation by Clare Ludlow, Principal Project Officer – Careers Skills and Employment Unit at the GLA who presented on the latest Careers Enterprise Company news and developments including the new London Career Hubs, Gatsby Benchmark 7 data and the careers support and guidance they offer. 

Following this, the group then heard from Ben Rutter, Funding Information Partners Account Manager from the Student Loans Company who presented on the latest HE finance news, including frequently asked questions, changing interest rates and highlighting some useful resources. 

After a short comfort break, a partner round table update then followed where our partners gave updates on IAG/outreach work with college learners planning to progress to HE, including latest news and events, issues and good practice. 

Lastly, Andrew Jones then gave a Linking London update including giving an overview of the recent HADA mapping in September, updated Linking London resources, the Educational Deprivation Dashboard for London and our Uni Connect Work. All our resources can be found on the Partner Area.
