TASO is offering to match higher education providers (HEPs) with members of our evaluation panel and fund independent evaluation support for interventions or initiatives that are designed to either:

  • Improve employment outcomes for disadvantaged or underrepresented students or;
  • Improve outcomes for disabled students in HE throughout the student lifecycle (enrollment, progression, awarding, employment).

The aim of this project is to build type 2 evidence (at a minimum) for interventions that support the above objectives and scope out the feasibility of type 3 evaluation. It is an opportunity for participating HEPs to build internal evaluation expertise and learn about the efficacy of current practices to support disadvantaged and underrepresented students. It may also be an opportunity for student service teams and widening participation (WP) evaluators to collaborate on a specific project.

To find out more about what’s on offer, and whether you might be eligible, read the full open call document here.

The deadline for applications is 12:00 midday on 22nd June. If you have any questions regarding the open call, please get in touch and we can arrange an informal conversation – research@taso.org.uk.
