What is the Student Attainment Project?

The Student Attainment Project

PReSS has been created by the Student Attainment Project, which was set up in response to the gap in attainment between black and minority ethnic (BME) and non-BME students across the HE sector. It aims to instigate a number of interventions across a range of programmes. It recognises that in order to succeed, a post-racial approach must be taken and interventions should be aimed at all students.

PReSS pack

Practical Recipes for Student Success (PReSS) is a series of “recipe cards” for academics and students aimed raising the attainment of learners.

The PReSS Pack has been presented as a blog so that users can comment on the resources and share ideas for modifications, or new recipe cards.
