Abstract

This paper considers the Higher Education Funding Council for England's (HEFCE's) strategic priorities for Lifelong Learning Networks (LLNs) in relation to the regional context of the East of England. It describes how some of the key change mechanisms available to LLNs are starting to have an impact in relation to these priorities. The mechanisms discussed include the strategic distribution of Additional Student Numbers (ASNs) and the allocation of development funding to address barriers to progression and provide new progression routes for learners progressing to higher education through vocational and work-based routes. The paper also describes a specific model of Progression Accord adopted by the LLN and some early data demonstrating impact in the region. Lastly, the paper identifies nest steps in sharing best practice in progression through the evaluative monitoring of Progression Accords and the further development of their use in relation to Diplomas and Advanced Apprenticeships.
