This presentation will provide an evidence-informed approach adopted within a large academic school to re-engage students who had disengaged from formal classes and were at risk of withdrawing. A supportive triage culture was used placing students at the heart of the process; non-engaging students were provided with individual support packages to enable successful re-engagement with academic studies. The work presented provides evidence based impact showcasing the strength of effective partnerships between the student, the academic team and central guidance. Further analysis revealed between 68-79% of the students identified as at risk of withdrawal had multiple intersections of protected characteristics (three or more).
