This event will examine the relationship between data and widening access to higher education (HE). It will outline the different data sources available and discuss their relevance to policymakers and practitioners. Delegates will gain a greater understanding of how data on participation, achievement and progression can enhance the impact of their work in the area of widening access to HE. They 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: ‘The Widening Access Scorecard – measuring progress in making HE more equal’.
