Who are we?

East Midlands Widening Participation Research and Evaluation Partnership (EMWPREP) is a collaboration of Midlands-based Higher Education providers that offers a targeting, monitoring and evaluation service for the outreach initiatives delivered by each partner. Detailed information on EMWPREP and how we collect and use the data can be found at:

Why are we collecting this information?

Your child / dependant is taking part in a Higher Education provider (university / college) outreach or recruitment activity. To ensure this and any further activities they take part in are useful, effective and reaching the right young people, we need to gather certain information (including information about your child / dependant’s ethnicity and disability status) which will be analysed and used by EMWPREP and partners for research purposes only. This information also helps us demonstrate to funders, such as the Office for Students (OfS), the value and impact of the activities we deliver.

Will we share the data you provide?

For research purposes we may share the data held on this form with the following receiving organisations:

  • our partner universities and colleges,
  • your child / dependant’s school or college,
  • your child / dependant’s school or college’s Local Authority,
  • third-party activity providers working with partner universities and colleges, and
  • third-party data processors working with partner universities and colleges.

What research do we do?

EMWPREP and the receiving organisations may then link data from this form to other educational data already held about your child / dependant (including Department for Education data held on the National Pupil Database, Individualised Learner Record data, UCAS records and/or HESA student records). We may access this data and use it to see if university or college activities have made a difference to your child / dependant’s future progression.

From time to time we may publish reports on our research, all data will be nameless, and individuals cannot be identified. The data will not be used for any other purpose.

Do you want more information?

Data will be processed in accordance with the relevant data protection legislation. For more information, please see or call 01509 223462.
