Report argues for student focused approach to improving higher education outcomes

A new report produced by the National Education Opportunities Network (@NEONHE) with the support of the Institute for Social and Economic Research calls for the government to shift attention away from assessing the value of courses and toward supporting those groups who are more likely not to achieve good degrees and graduate jobs. In 2018-19, there was a difference of 22.1 percentage points between the proportion of white and black students getting a 1st or 2:1 while students from free school meal (FSM) backgrounds earn on average nearly £3000 less than those from non-FSM backgrounds 5 years after graduation. As COVID-19 makes it imperative that all students who go onto HE achieve their full potential this report brings together 10 contributions from thought leaders in the UK sector and from abroad to outline a student focused approach to improving HE outcomes.
