The aim of ACCESS4ALL is to promote the educational and social inclusion of under-represented groups as well as of non-traditional learners, thereby broadly satisfying one of the main priorities being called for in the Erasmus+ programme and addressing one of the important features of it: “promoting equity and inclusion by facilitating the access to learners with disadvantaged backgrounds and fewer opportunities compared to their peers”.
There are 4 specific objectives:
- to establish a map of the institutional policies for attending to under represented groups in relation to academic access and success
- to establish guidelines to be implemented by higher education organisations to promote initiatives aimed to encourage the access and successful development of students who are under-represented in universities
- to co-create strategies and measures promoting the access, continuation (and success) of vulnerable students and non-traditional learners at university
- to create a laboratory for the creation of innovative and flexible strategies in order to promote the commitment of Higher Education institutions to the most vulnerable student groups
