Abstract

This paper outlines some of the risks to the effective implementation of Diplomas and seeks to promote discussion concerning existing practice based experience. The risks identified include limited recognition of the Diploma as an equivalent entry qualification to HE and limited engagement in the development of Diplomas by the HE sector. The paper describes some of the ways in which Lifelong Learning Networks can address these risks focusing on the benefits of introducing progression accords. A range of case study examples are provided to stimulate further discussion of how progression accords could be implemented in a variety of higher education contexts.
