Annual Monitoring Reporting and retention and progression

Date: September 16 - 2019

We have completed our project that aimed to explore approaches to using data in the annual monitoring processes used by Scottish HEIs. A key focus was on sharing policy and practice with a particular emphasis on retention and progression data.

In addition to publishing the report of the findings from this work we have curated over 30 examples of practice. You will find these examples valuable for:

  1. exploring different ways of approaching common challenges
  2. inspiring colleagues with examples of effective practice from across the sector
  3. liaising with sector colleagues to understand what’s worked for them.

Do you have an example of practice to share?

This is a key time in academic session for the annual monitoring activity. We would be really interested to know how you might be applying and adapting these examples at your own institution or if you have other examples to add. Get in touch with us at
