In 2019, TASO commissioned the Education Policy Institute (EPI) to review the existing evidence base for widening participation (WP) activities. TASO published EPI’s report in January 2020: The impact of interventions for widening access to higher education.
Following consideration of the report’s findings, and recommendations from the Theme 1 Working Group, TASO adopted the following research priorities:
- Summer schools
- Multi-intervention outreach schemes and mentoring
- Mature learners
- Learners with experience of children’s social care
