This is a full recording of a webinar we hosted exploring the evidence on attainment-raising activities conducted by Higher Education Providers (HEPs).

It was an opportunity to hear more and discuss our new report, a rapid-evidence review on interventions and activities carried out by HEPs to raise the attainment of school-age students.

It was also an opportunity to:

  • Update the sector on the development of a new validated survey that will allow HE providers to measure intermediate outcomes that are positively correlated with attainment
  • Find out how HEAT’s new Key Stage 4 dashboard and dataset can assist providers to evaluate the impact of attainment raising activity
  • Hear from the OfS about their expectations for universities and colleges in relation to raising attainment activity, including making variations to access and participation plans for 2023-24

The webinar was presented in five sections:

  • Attainment raising typology
  • Variations to APPs
  • Measuring KS4 attainment
  • Measuring intermediate outcomes
  • Q&A with the audience
