About topic briefings

In order to better support universities and colleges to make further and faster progress, we have launched a series of ‘topic briefings’. Each briefing in the series will focus on a different topic, bringing together evidence, good practice and resources to help universities and colleges develop smarter, more evidence-led policy and practice. The briefings give an overview of what we’re seeing in access agreements, provide examples of innovative and effective practice, and pose questions for universities and colleges when looking at how best to make progress in their own context and circumstances.

We will be adding many more briefings in the coming weeks and months on a range of topics. Briefings will be updated regularly to keep them current and useful. We hope that they will prove to be a useful tool, and a first port-of-call for widening participation staff seeking information on what works best to improve access and support students in their studies.
