Report 4: Access and Widening Participation: A Good Practice Guide

Diversity & Inclusion


The move to widen participation in HE is having a significant impact at the discipline level. Recent shifts in government policy mean that all English departments will need to review their practice carefully. Guidance is provided in this report, which includes, as examples of good practice, a set of case studies based on the work of English departments at three HE institutions experienced in the teaching of ‘under-represented’ students: Manchester Metropolitan University, King Alfred’s College, Winchester and the University of Teesside. As well as providing case studies, the report draws attention to other departmental, institutional and national initiatives and discusses the impact on students and departments of recent disability legislation.
