Transition, retention and attainment (Wales)

Transition, Retention and Attainment (Wales) - Strategic Enhancement Programme

The TRA-SEP (Wales) is an initiative across Wales supporting institutions in developing their strategies around student retention and success. The programme’s key themes of the student experience, the curriculum, and the use, sharing and developing of data are aimed at developing holistic approaches to student support across the student lifecycle; developing and sharing best use of learning analytics, and designing approaches to the curriculum that strengthen engagement and promotes retention.

Participating institutions already have a strong background working across these areas. For the purposes of this programme, they are focusing on specific issues which are briefly outlined below, and all universities aim to share, across the sector, findings related to principles, practices and modes of delivery.

You can now see more of the work of the HEA TRA-SEP participating institutions, by downloading the case studies at the bottom of the page, and the presentations from our Ready for retention? conference.
