On Thursday 7 July 2022 – to coincide with the launch of a report on the topic – HEPI will be hosting a webinar looking at one of the most disadvantaged minority groups in UK education.

Gypsies, Roma and Travellers (GRT) are among the lowest achieving ethnic groupings in the UK education system, with stark disparities in attainment apparent from early years education through to higher education. The new HEPI report, Gypsies, Roma and Travellers: The Most Disadvantaged Minorities in UK Education, looks at the reasons behind poor educational outcomes; the issues faced by GRT students in higher education institutions; and an overview of current schemes to improve GRT access to higher education in the UK and concludes by making several policy recommendations.

Final details to be confirmed.
