Higher Education Funding Council for England, Bristol.
The Higher Education Funding Council for England and the Learning and Skills Council have provided funding between 2000 and 2003 for 81 projects aimed at widening participation in higher education. This document provides an overview of the outcomes of this initiative and lists the funding received by institutions. It also provides some examples of good practice. Overall, the widening participation projects were successful in having a significant impact on institutions and target groups. The program has encouraged collaboration between institutions, including those who consider themselves to be competitors. Good project management and adequate staffing have been key to the successful meeting of targets. Two appendixes list the institutions and provide examples of good practice. (SLD)
