This working group is an on-going forum that is actively trying to support and shape how we prove the worth of our work. The working group advocates to policymakers, in particular The Office for Students, regarding how they can support those tasked with evaluation.

This Working Group is organised by the East Midlands Widening Participation Research and Evaluation Partnership (EMWPREP).

The meeting will be held online on Tuesday 24th January from 1pm to 3pm.
