Abstract

Lifelong Learning Networks are concerned with bringing about change in the practices and the provision of higher education to address the issue of low progression through vocational, applied and work-based routes. MOVE Lifelong Learning Network has sought to create a step change in lifelong learning and maximise the vocational progression opportunities for individuals within the MOVE learner constituency in the East of England. This includes: those with vocational or applied qualifications at level three those qualifying through work-based learning routes return to study learners seeking entry into vocational programmes either directly or through Access to Higher Education provision This document describes how MOVE has strategically employed the use of development funding to generate a critical mass of curriculum and other development activity within the region to bring about the step change in provision that is required to meet the needs of these learners. The aim is to demonstrate how targeted funding can stimulate significant innovation in the way in which higher education is delivered, in the type and range of provision that is available and in the practices employed to promote and support progression to higher education. In addition, the document describes how such changes in provision can contribute to a more employer led approach to curriculum development. The text also includes a range of project case study examples to illustrate the qualitative impact of the development activity supported by MOVE.
