Abstract

Widening Participation in Higher Education has been a major area of government priority over recent
years. One consequence of this has been an increase in policy and practice activity at national, regional
and institutional level. Given this volume and range of activity, the need for colleagues in the sector to
keep apprised of Widening Participation developments has grown ever greater. This guide has been
produced to offer summary information on the main issues and questions relating to Widening
Participation. It is a guide to practice rather than an overview of theory and research, although the
‘resources’ section at the end will point you in these directions. The information provided is in summary
form giving readers an introduction which can be followed up via reference with further reading. The
web version of this guide can be updated and we would welcome reader feedback on both information
gaps and shelf-life of the information.
