Class of 2023: Supporting the new intake

By COSMO on July 4th, 2023.

How have young people progressed since the pandemic? How can we can help young people with their move into higher education? Watch our webinar to find out.

This webinar delves into how the cohort of young people who have just taken A levels have progressed since the pandemic. It provides useful context for admissions decisions this summer, and considers the best ways to support young people with their move into higher education.

Chaired by Dr Rebecca Montacute, you will hear from the researchers behind the study, including Dr Jake Anders, and from those working in the HE sector. You will also hear from members of the Sutton Trust COSMO Youth Panel, who share their lived experience and how the pandemic has affected them.  

Throughout the webinar, we discuss topics such as attainment, education catch-up, financial impacts and the cost-of-living crisis, as well as mental health and wellbeing.  

This event provides great insight into what these students have been facing and how to best support them in the future, so we encourage you to watch the session and share it with your networks.
