SPA visits to HE providers
Since SPA was established in 2006 our visits to HE providers have enabled us to develop an extensive understanding of existing good practice in admissions to HE. When we visit, it’s partly to broaden this knowledge and understanding, through learning about your admissions operation, but more importantly it’s to help where we can.
Some visits may be specific to one narrow issue, but generally we would expect HE providers to view it as an opportunity to discuss a range of topics and to include colleagues from admissions and related areas. We are not a regulator or an auditor, so discussion can take place in an informal and confidential setting.
As a small team covering the whole of the UK, we are limited in the number of HE providers we can visit each year, but if you are interested in a SPA visit, please contact us. If we can’t arrange a visit in a timely way for your needs, we’ll still try and address any questions you have via email or phone.
