dc.descriptionIn 2009, the Australian Government set a number of targets for higher education including improving the participation of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds in higher education to 20 percent of all undergraduate students by 2020. The HEPPP was part of this initiative and was delivered through a partnership of five universities, one of which was the University of Sydney. The Widening Participation Grants were part of this program.en_AU
dc.description.abstractThe report provides an evaluation of an accelerated entry program for the BSW at the University of Sydney. This program enables students who have successfully completed a TAFE Diploma in a related field, to enter the second year of the four year BSW degree. The mixed methods study included an online survey of participating students, semi-structured interviews with students, and interviews with key staff members involved in the program. The findings indicated a range of positive outcomes and ongoing challenges for students and staff. Recommendations included curriculum reform to support the knowledge - skills transition including access to specific programs focussing on academic writing and literacy; targeted student preparation as part of initial engagement, including enrollment processes and orientation, and ongoing student support through mentoring and other initiatives providing more individualised information-giving to students.en_AU
