This report presents the findings of an evaluation of the Disability Equality Partnership (DEP). The evaluation was carried out by Oakleigh Consulting in 2008 as part of our review of our policy as it relates to disabled students.
The DEP was a working arrangement between Action on Access, the Equality Challenge Unit and the Higher Education Academy. The partnership was funded between January 2006 and December 2008 to provide support to the sector with regard to its provision and support for disabled students.
The purpose of the evaluation was to establish what worked well in the arrangement, what aspects of it and the support it offered might be enhanced, and whether the partnership was the most effective means of delivering support.
