The issues of retaining students and improving attainment are complex, and there is no 'one size fits all approach' for success. Our project examined 28,824 student records to identify those retention variables that are significant.
Mindful of the value of keeping students informed about their progress and attainment throughout their programme, the TESTA pilot from year 1 of implementation was included.
The data gained from the study was used to frame ways where TESTA could be further developed to improve student retention rates.
