9:30 am - 4:00 pm
This event will examine the range of data available regarding who participates and succeeds in HE and how it is and can be used to drive improvements in students outcomes. It will outline the different data sources available and identify their relevance and use to those with responsibility for access & participation in HE providers and partnerships. Delegates will gain a greater understanding of how data on participation, achievement and progression can enhance the impact their work in the area of widening access to HE.
Delegates will also hear new perspectives on assessing progress in widening access work at the institutional and national level with the launch of the new NEON report: ‘Hitting the Target: What Access and Participation Plans tell us about access to HE.’
