To develop and enhance student empowerment and academic engagement on the BA Social Policy programme. Specifically the study sought to:
• Link issues surrounding the progression , retention and achievement of specific student cohorts in Social Policy as identified in the current annual programme review (APR - BIQAES) and elsewhere, with an evaluation of the potential impact of critical interventions (e.g. revision, study skills, and feedback and assessment sessions).
• Seek student feedback of the current approaches towards the development of study skills (e.g. academic reading and writing, critical thinking, revision and exam preparation and performance, and referencing and avoiding plagiarism) and other support measures that scaffold the student transition to enquiry-based learning within the discipline.
• Identify and make recommendations for curriculum innovation and development (including those around feedback and assessment) for potential implementation in a staged approach
