1 Using data to support progression – the view from HEFCE 10 February 2011 Alison Brunt

2 Overview: HEFCEs use of data To support policy formation and implementation To evaluate policy outcomes To inform our funding model To inform our knowledge of the sector

3 Using data to support our widening participation policies Evidence base used to inform our widening access funding methodology Use of data to evaluate and measure success in WP policies Provides us with evidence that our investment in WP is making a difference to under-represented groups

4 Using existing datasets/sources Types of data and uses HESA, ILR, UCAS, NPD Labour Force Survey Advantages Low burden on institutions Consistent data collection across the sector UK wide Established data source Ability to link datasets Ability to identify progression Disadvantages Limited depth of information

6 Creating new data collections Types of data and uses Aimhigher summer schools Aimhigher Associates Advantages Develop a data specification with the sector which is specific to our needs Evaluate success of specific programmes Disadvantages Guidance needed Time consuming

7 HE acceptance rates by summer school participation and disadvantaged income background

8 The middle ground Used existing datasets but with an additional element of collection Advantages National picture of how ASNs are utilised by LLNs Track students progression in the future Disadvantages Only one part of a much wider possible evidence base Identification of LLN learners not always straight-forward Lifelong learning networks – HESA data collection

9 LLN flagged learners: Full-time, first degree entrants who continue or qualify at the same HEI

10 Full-time, first degree entrants who continue or qualify at the same HEI
