MOVE progression accords identify specific vocational progression routes from both further education and the workplace to and through higher education. This includes the provision of guaranteed places on higher education programmes of study and other agreed collaborative activities designed to support and prepare learners for progression to higher education. MOVE progression accords are designed to promote vocational progression opportunities and to encourage the engagement of employers in supporting progression to higher level learning in collaboration with MOVE and its partner institutions in the region. In signing the accord, partners are also committing to implementing an agreed set of ‘required’ activities designed to ensure that the accords are seen as a supported, collaborative process between the practitioners and the learners involved. There is also a list of optional ‘recommended’ activities. Our approach is predicated on the belief that this shared professional learning will help to effect behavioural and culture changes that will underpin the continuing success and sustainability of the accords.
