This Working Group is organised by the University of Leicester.
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 practitioner-led network of partnerships between FE providers, HEIs, Access course providers and other agencies.
The working group will create a guide to best practice across the sector from pre-entry information, advice and guidance to employability following graduation.
Please join us and help to build this network. If you have any queries about this working group contact NEON@LondonHigher.ac.uk.
To allow members to keep in touch in between meetings, share ideas & best practice and communicate with one another a Linkedin group has been created. To join please click here.
