Overcoming Social Exclusion in Higher Education through the Provision of a Distance Education Enabling Programme
This article discusses the role of enabling programmes in providing opportunities for ‘access with success’ to higher education for groups that are under-represented. A background to the Australian higher education context is provided, along with insight into the benefits for participating students. Government policy regarding the resourcing of these programmes is also considered. The university's distance education Tertiary Preparation Programme (TPP), is used as a case study to illustrate the means by which an enabling programme aims to overcome the social exclusion of under-represented Australians.
