Project overview

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

We 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.
