Education, Skills and Employment
The Equity in Higher Education Panel (EHEP) is a high level strategic advisory body with a focus on student equity in higher education. The EHEP will provide advice and make recommendations to the Department of Education, Skills, and Employment on strategic issues relating to improving student equity in higher education. As part of its work the EHEP will develop a Student Equity in Higher Education Roadmap, a five year strategy aligned with the reform agenda to drive and support wider aspiration, improved access, participation, retention, success, and completion and better transition to employment outcomes of students from under-represented groups nationally.
