Why participate in Collaborative Projects?

Higher Education Academy have developed collaborative programmes where higher education providers come together to share and understand the issues and address common challenges.

These programmes involve an initial audit exercise to help you understand your issues in context as well as highlighting areas of concern. Networking, bespoke and targeted support will then develop your expertise in designing interventions that help inform your planning and development of your retention strategy and practice.

Participants achieve a deeper understanding of student retention, using the Higher Education Academy’s framework for student access, retention, attainment and progression as a core reference point.
