Regulatory notice 1: Access and participation plan guidance

This regulatory notice sets out guidance for higher education providers in England on the preparation of an access and participation plan for consideration by the Director for Fair Access and Participation. It will help providers to understand:

  • what they need to include in their access and participation plan
  • how to submit it for consideration
  • what happens after that.

The guidance applies in respect of applications for the approval of access and participation plans (and related matters) for the academic year commencing 2021-22 until it is revoked, varied or replaced.
