ARC Network to investigate perceptions of HE in white working class young men

ARC Network are to be delighted to be working with Southern Universities Network on a research project examining the perceptions of white British working class young men.  The research project, commissioned in October 2016,  seeks to establish what young men in Southampton think about Higher Education as an option.  In addition, the study will examine what parents think and feel about their son’s progression in education and work.  Alongside qualitative research the ARC Network team will examine a range of data to help the network understand local patterns of progression. The research comes at a time when there is increased concern about the differential rates in HE progression between learner groups and it is hoped that the research will support SUN partner organisations to plan provision as part of the forthcoming national collaborative outreach programme (NCOP).   The research will be launched at the network’s conference in December 2016.  To know more about the study contact us on team@aimhighernetwork.co.uk

Greater Manchester Higher data tool launched

ARC Network have been working with Greater Manchester Higher over the last 6 months on the development of an exciting new data tool.  The bespoke tool, built for GM Higher partners, brings together a host of data about local schools and colleges in order to help organisations to better target their outreach provision.  Users can access a range of information about the profile of  learners within an institution as well as  attainment and progression data. The tool is built using data from a range of publicly available sources but pulls this together in a single place, making it easier for outreach practitioners to use in their day to day work.  It is hoped that the tool will allow Greater Manchester Higher to ensure that new programmes of work are focused at the learners and institutions where there is greatest need.  To hear more about how the tool was developed contact us on team@aimhighernetwork.co.uk
