Here at Student CRM we support WAHED
The first World Access to Higher Education Day (WAHED) is on the 28th November 2018.
The aim of WAHED is to create a platform which raises global awareness around inequalities in access to higher education and act as a catalyst for international, regional and local action.
In the era of the 4th industrial revolution access to skills and knowledge has never been more important, but in every country in the world where we have evidence (over 90%) inequalities in access by social background exist. The initiative is being led by the National Education Opportunities Network (NEON) in the UK which is a non-profit organisation leading on equitable access to HE work in the UK.
For further background on WAHED and the organisations that are supporting the initiative please go to www.worldaccesshe.com. It is supported by a planning group of organisations from across the world and by NCUK.
UNESCO SDG 4: ‘equal access for all women and men to affordable and quality technical, vocational and higher education’ is a goal that student CRM continues to support through enabling UK universities to extend their reach to include a broader spectrum of individuals wanting to access higher education.
