In the next few years the number of 17-18 year olds will drop and focus on recruitment of mature learners into HE will become key. There has a been a recent fall in participation from mature learners in FE and HE due to funding changes and a lack of support. We need to underline the importance of mature learners and their journeys into HE to shape and support their development.

This working group is envisaged as a basis from which to develop a practioner-led network of partnerships between FE providers, HEIs, Access course providers and other agencies.
