Making the Transition
Clark, Wayne
Adults Learning, v22 n5 p20-21 Jan 2011
The role of universities in contributing to lifelong learning is likely to undergo significant change in the next few years as the higher education sector grapples with the government's overhaul of university funding. Opportunities for progression to university for those studying outside of A-levels are particularly uncertain in the emerging environment. How will vocational learners fit into a higher education system facing funding constraints and increased pressure to improve graduate employment? "FE to HE Transitions," a research project examining the experiences and aspirations of vocational learners making the transition from Level 3 to degree-level study and into the graduate labour market, shows that universities have a key role in supporting successful vocational learner progression and career development.
