Universities. There is already a commitment between ourselves, Sussex and Brighton universities, who have historically worked alongside each other as part of the AimHigher initiative, to: • Continue the HEI forum of collaborative partnership working • Support the Pan-Sussex Care Leavers group that is managed and facilitated by Work & Learning Opportunities, a community interest company run by the former AimHigher Sussex Director.

Knowledge exchange In line with our commitment to the collaborative sharing of best practice within the ﬁeld of Widening Participation, we will continue to contribute to UK, European and International knowledge exchange and research conferences. In the UK we are active members of NEON and have been invited to join the Laser Awards’ Access Quality and Development Committee. In Europe we will build upon our links with Sweden and the European Access Network (EAN), whilst there will be on-going collaboration with Australia, where we have active relationships. The University as an Academy Sponsor Our success in demystifying higher education and reducing the barriers towards attending university has involved active engagement with schools and colleges over many years. As an academy sponsor we are now, through the vehicle of the Chichester Academy Trust (CAT), able to make a systemic intervention in the education and attainment outcomes of pupils in schools and colleges. CAT aspires to be a Multi-Academy Trust of about 30-40 eclectic, cross-phase family of schools with the common aim of continuous school improvement through challenge, collaboration and support. Embedded into CAT’s core service provision is a commitment for our academies to raise aspirations and widen participation and progression to FE and HE. “Moving Forward” Our Learner Progression Framework will form the cornerstone of this approach and it is envisaged that in our primary and junior schools a key plank of our work will be the inclusion of our Moving Forward - Primary Project.

Universities. In Italy, there are numerous Universities that foreseen a degree course in Professional Educator (healthcare sector), among these: • University of Bari xxxxx://xxxxxxxxx.xxx.xxxxx.xx/didattica/xxxxx-xx-xxxxxx/2016-2017/educazione- professionale • University of Brescia xxxx://xxx.xxxxx.xx/didattica/xxxxx-xx-xxxxxx-triennale-e-magistrale/xxxxx-xx- xxxxxx/medicina-e-chirurgia/xxxxx-xx-xxxxxx-delle-professioni-sanitarie/educatore- professionale-sanitario • University of Xxxxxxxx xxxx://xxx.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.xxxxx.xx/cmpro-v-p-11.html • University of Genoa xxxx://xxxxxxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxx.xxxxx.xx/professioni/index.php?prof=13 • University of Milan xxxx://xxx.xxxx.xxxxx.xx/offerta_didattica/D72.htm In order to practise this profession, it is necessary the three-years degree for Professional Educator. The degree program has a limited number, therefore it is necessary to pass an admission test (that is annually planned on a national basis). To date, it is not foreseen any registration into a professional register. The simple title of study is therefore sufficient to permit the exercise of the profession. The academic studies also include hours of training to gain experience in the field; practical experience for this type of profession is particularly important in order to learn how to face problematic situations. The training includes vocational courses at healthcare facilities of the National Health Service and at social and health care facilities of public bodies identified in the memoranda of understanding between regions and universities. Once finished the academic studies, it is useful to make an analysis of the territory in order to be informed about the opportunities in the public and private sectors. To work in the public sector, it is necessary to look for call for bids in the area of interest. In order to access to a public competition for the health professions management or teaching at university, the Professional Educator has to graduate in 3 years specific course and graduate in the second level degree (Laurea Xxxxxxxxxx XX/SNT2 SCIENZE RIABILITATIVE DELLE PROFESSIONI SANITARIE).
