As a regulator, OFFA has a responsibility to ensure that universities and colleges are meeting their commitments to individual students and are making progress towards the milestones and targets set out in their access agreements. We do this by monitoring access agreements on an annual basis (more information about this).
Monitoring of 2014-15 access agreements
Our most recent monitoring data is in our 2014-15 monitoring outcomes report. This report includes the progress made by universities and colleges against the targets they set for themselves and their levels of investment, plus our commentary on those outcomes. We have also published each higher education institution’s own assessment of its progress against the individual milestones and targets it set itself in its 2014-15 access agreement together with its explanatory commentary.
For the first time, we have published a second monitoring outcomes report, focusing on how institutions are evaluating their access, student success and progression measures, and the equality and diversity work undertaken. This report is intended to increase the sector’s understanding of evaluation and equality and diversity work currently being carried out, support institutions in their development of future evaluation and equality and diversity activity, and provide insights into how institutions have made a difference. For further information on OFFA’s work in this area, please see the evidence and good practice section of our website.
