SPA works closely with universities and colleges to enhance good practice, excellence and professionalism in the recruitment and selection of students to higher education. SPA promotes fair admissions by researching and disseminating good practice and advice across the HE sector. Further information about SPA's work can be found at www.spa.ac.uk
The expertise, independence and impartiality in evidence based policy and practice has enabled the small SPA team to successfully develop the connections and sector confidence to act as a broker between both makers and implementers of policy in UK HE admissions. SPA staff have brought skills and understanding from the variety of institutions in which they previously worked in admissions, student recruitment and widening inclusion.
