Improving retention and success: retaining students to and through higher education

The Metropole Temple Street Llandrindod Wells Powys, Wales , LD1 5DY
12 May 2010 00:00

A one-day conference jointly hosted by the Higher Education Academy and the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales.

This free conference will be of particular interest to staff working in the following areas of higher education: senior management and resource planning, admissions, equality and diversity, student services, marketing and recruitment, retention, research and widening access, though it will be of interest to all staff with responsibility for retaining successful students to and through higher education.

The Welsh Assembly Higher Education strategy For Our Future, the 21st Century Higher Education Strategy and Plan for Wales includes a commitment to a renewed approach to widening access to higher education including an expectation for HEFCW and stakeholders to deliver:

‘A renewed widening access strategy in 2010 to include stronger focus on helping those who access higher education to successfully complete their learning objectives.’

This conference will explore issues of retention and student success from an institutional and learner perspective, with UK contributions, including input and examples of effective practice from the Welsh sector.
