5. TASO and Evaluating Access and Participation in Post-16 Education The Access Podcast

    • Education

In our fifth episode we speak to Dr Omar Khan, Directors of the Centre for Transforming Access and Student Outcomes in Higher Education, or TASO as it is more commonly known. TASo is an independent charity TASO is committed to the generation, synthesis and dissemination of high-quality evidence about effective practice in widening participation and student outcomes. Among other things, I asked Dr Khan about the potential impact of minimum entry requirements on evaluating pre-entry activities by whether or not it leads to progression to HE. We also discussed the Office for Students new emphasis on outreach activities that support increased attainment, the fact that we have done this before and that perhaps we need a new set of evaluation criteria if we are to truly capture the impact of those interventions.

Please consider letting us know your views by answering the poll on Spotify and/or writing to us on accesspodcast@soas.ac.uk.

We would also like to know if you have any questions for John Blacke, Director of the Office for Students, with whom we will be speaking very shortly.
