Project overview

Retention and progression continues to be a priority across the sector and our sector-wide project is supporting work in this area.

One of our projects explores interventions and approaches aimed at improving student retention and progression. We have produced a short booklet that draws on the findings of the main report and presents a set of key questions that institutions might find helpful in reviewing strategy, policy and practice on retention and progression activity.

A second project is underway which is exploring approaches to using data in the annual monitoring processes used by Scottish HEIs. Its intention is to share policy and practice with a particular emphasis on retention and progression data. We will publish the outcomes of this work in the summer of 2019.
