The AGCAS Social Mobility Working Party [SMWP] is seeking to recruit a new member.

The SMWP is currently developing its Social Mobility Tool Kit Project and is looking for someone currently working in a WP post, or with a keen interest in Social Mobility and Widening Participation, to join them to contribute to the creation and promotion of this resource.

The SMWP is due to conclude its work in August 2019, with the Tool Kit expected to launch at the AGCAS Conference. The terms of the SMWP may be extended past this date on instruction by the AGCAS Board of Directors.

Chaired by the AGCAS Director for Social Mobility, the SMWP is responsible for supporting the enhancement of social mobility by promoting and communicating best practice within the AGCAS membership and HE sector, as well as engaging with external bodies as appropriate and contributing to discussion, policy development and professional practice.

The SMWP will be holding regular meetings up until the launch of this resource, held both in person and remotely.
