Call for evidence: what works to improve attainment for disadvantaged students in the further education and adult skills sector
Learning and Work Institute is synthesising the evidence based on what works to improve attainment for disadvantaged students in the Further Education and Adult Skills sector. This project is being supported by the Social Mobility Commission.
We are drawing together the best available evidence and assessing its quality with the aim of informing commissioners and practitioners about 'what works' and policy makers what further investment is needed from government to improve evidence in this area.
The ultimate objective is to spur investment and activity from research bodies to help fill evidence gaps to better inform support for disadvantaged students, raise their attainment and access to opportunities.
We are interested in hearing from you to help us identify any evidence that would be suitable to include in the review.
Please read this important information before submitting your response.
The evidence you submit should be:
- An impact or process evaluation
- Academic or grey literature
- From the UK or OECD countries
- Published in English
- Published from 1990 onwards
The evidence you submit should focus on:
- Post-16 education
- Disadvantaged learners (e.g. those eligible for free school meals, or groups such as young adult carers, care leavers or learners with LDD)
- Individual or group interventions aimed at improving attainment e.g. one-to-one tutoring, behavioural nudges and communications, providing bursaries for bus fares, etc.
- Further education colleges and providers (apprenticeships are excluded from this evaluation).
- Attainment in academic routes within FE, such as GCSE, A Levels, and functional skills qualifications, and wider outcomes such as changes in attitudes or behaviours.
Please submit evidence before Friday 2nd August.
