Flexible Access to Vocational Qualifications. Second Edition. Revised and Updated.
Pursaill, John; Potter, Mary
This guide is designed to explore how British further education colleges can open up their vocational programs to the whole community and to describe the sort of strategic planning necessary to achieve flexible access. Chapter 1 discusses the content and purpose of the handbook. Chapter 2 provides an overview of the new framework for vocational qualifications in the United Kingdom, details main elements, and raises issues on access and credit accumulation. Chapter 3 illustrates flexible delivery methods and issues that arise in their use by drawing on developing practice in a range of vocational areas. In chapter 4, five college case studies show a range of strategies for planned change towards an open access and learner-centered system. (YLB)
