We recently set out our policy on Intergenerational mentoring and widening participation in Higher Education.  There is an urgent need to develop innovative research-informed practice in the area of widening participation.  Our model of intergenerational mentoring offers a research-informed response that can make an important contribution to this policy agenda.

Our policy brief outlines the issue of inequality in access to university higher education and the problem with current interventions in Scotland.  We also state what we know about mentoring at the present moment and the role of research in developing future mentoring programmes.

Read more about the issues and research that informed our policy brief.
