Abstract

In a tiered model of academic support, well designed tertiary level academic recovery programs are an integral part of overall student persistence strategies. Yet despite the validity of the design, the success achieved by former students, and marketing efforts, take up and retention rates for this safety net program remain low. This session will outline the structure, outcomes and recruitment efforts used in the Study Skills Plus. It will then ask participants to share their own experiences of academic recovery programs and attempt to identify recruitment and retention strategies into voluntary programs such as this, which have worked in their own institutions.
