In 1997, the Widening Participation Committee chaired by Helena Kennedy QC published its report, Learning Works. The report profoundly affected developments in further education. It defined widening participation as: Access, achievement and progression for those groups often under-represented in further education. This definition has spurred colleges and other providers of further education to focus not merely on ‘getting new students in’ but also in making sure that they succeed in their studies.
