Widening Participation: Dr Angela O’ Sullivan

Angela O’Sullivan strongly illustrates the success of redesigning the content and delivery of a programme to allow for Widening Participation and inclusivity.  She explains that the programme changes to include ‘real life’ scenarios have allowed for a more diverse intake in Speech Therapy and Audiology students. SALT includes the development of both academic and work based skills and has successfully increased pass rates. She has also developed inter-professional working and led a more student centred approach with a solid commitment to Equal Opportunities in this area of study.
