Study looking at factors relating to higher education progression other than prior educational attainment.
Prior educational attainment has been identified as an important factor as to whether or not an individual will progress into higher education. This does not explain all the differences that exist by groups, such as by ethnicity and disadvantage.
This research adds to existing evidence by investigating what other factors might determine progression to higher education. The report pays particular attention to the role of aspirations, attitudes and behaviours displayed by young people and their parents.
