|Widening Participation Longitudinal Study (WPLS): 2020 Scoping and Implementation Study
The WPLS will examine the factors influencing higher education participation of groups in Australia, with a focus on the impact of equity interventions that aim to enhance participation and attainment by population sub-groups who typically experience educational disadvantage.This project will produce a scoping and implementation study for a WPLS. The WPLS may be part of a new national longitudinal Post-School Destinations Survey (PSDS) which is currently being considered under the National School Reform Agreement. The scoping study will inform a project proposal for a PSDS.
