Abstract

In this chapter, I will be arguing that the relationships between further and higher education institutions can be crucial in either promoting fair access to higher education or reinforcing the barriers that limit opportunities for progression through vocational routes. I will be introducing some of the policy initiatives targeted at enhancing fair access and analysing how the principles of fair access described within the Schwartz Report (September
2004) are constructed to reinforce the institutional autonomy of Universities in determining what constitutes ‘merit and potential’. I will then describe how the use of progression accords can establish constructive relationships between further and higher education institutions to promote wider understanding and recognition of vocational qualifications. In particular, I
will be describing an example of the positive impact of the introduction of progression accords in the creative industries sector in the East of England.
