Evaluation of access and participation plan reforms

Published 11 March 2021

Independent evaluation

We commissioned an independent evaluation of the effectiveness of our regulatory reforms to the five-year 2020-21 to 2024-25 access and participation plans.

The review explores the extent that these reforms have led to an increase in ambition and positive change in provider behaviour necessary for equality of opportunity in higher education. The report involved stakeholder interviews, focus groups and surveys with provider staff, students and sector representative bodies. We have written a response to this report.
