Both nationally and internationally there is a drive to increase participation in post-compulsory education. Yet with existing participation rates already high by historical standards, it is not easy to see how this can be done. Now Liz Thomas provides a comprehensive guide. From an analysis of the motives for expansion and the reasons why students enroll--or fail to enroll-through to a critical analysis of existing and innovative schemes, the author highlights good practice and explains ways to develop a strategic approach to widening participation.
Liz Thomas is Senior Adviser for Widening Participation at the UK Higher Education Academy, and Vice-President, Research and Publications for the European Access Network. She edits the peer-reviewed journal Widening Participation and Lifelong Learning.
