SPA has worked on a variety of issues surrounding good practice and equality in higher education (HE) admissions. We have produced guidance in response to queries from admissions practitioners and due to policy or legislative changes which directly impact admissions practice or policy.
Much of our work in this area has been produced in collaboration with the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) who work to further and support equality and diversity for staff and students in higher education across all four nations of the UK, and in colleges in Scotland.
ECU is a registered charity funded by the Scottish Funding Council, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales and Universities UK, and through direct subscription from higher education institutions in England and Northern Ireland.
SPA recommends that HE practitioners who have queries pertaining to equality issues contact ECU directly.
