Eliminating differential outcomes and closing racialised awarding gaps - online repository available now

Date: July 27 - 2023

An online repository has been created aimed at eliminating differential outcomes and closing  racialised awarding and progression gaps. The repository is a key output from one of the latest QAA-funded Collaborative Enhancement Projects (CEP).

The resource was produced through our Investigating the elimination of differential outcomes project, which was led by Manchester Metropolitan University, in partnership with the University of Salford, Liverpool John Moores University and University of Central Lancashire.

The project partners aimed to address inequalities within higher education, particularly awarding gaps, and promote inclusive learning.

This project developed an online toolkit to provide accessible guidance and resources to support academic staff in decolonising their curricula. The toolkit has produced extensive resources including:

The toolkit is easily adaptable and available externally. The project team will continue to update the resources.

The toolkit is housed on an online repository: The UK Higher Education Award Gap Group repository. The repository produced guidance documents, case studies and evaluations of support mechanisms or interventions from higher education providers across the UK.
