  • Discuss the benefits and challenges of a learner centred, progressive approach to widening participation
  • Explore the different partnerships needed to ensure such an approach can succeed
  • Increase their own understanding of the progression needs of learners
  • Gain an understanding of the concept of ‘learner outcomes’ and how to apply these to a progressive curriculum
  • Identify priorities and plan for their implementation within their organisation
