Abstract

This workshop considered the following:

What are the most important things that progression accords should try to develop and achieve?

• Cultural change within institutions.
• Clarity for learners around entry requirements.
• Facilitate progression for learners coming from workplace.

At what levels should they operate?

• Important to gain middle management buy-in
• Combination of high level agreement, mid-level network-wide agreements, and operational level bilateral agreements.

What is the synergy between the development of progression accords and credit frameworks?

• Look to build in process of evaluating experiential learning into progression agreements.
• Need to understand differentiation between credit transfer at HE level, and credit as a means of recognising learning for entry into HE.

Proposals for future developments/finding solutions, etc

Need for more case studies on:
• Progression from workplace
• Use of credit
• Embedding progression accords into institutional processes.
