The seminar provided a timely opportunity for stakeholders and policymakers to discuss the next steps for widening access to further and higher education in Scotland.
Delegates examined The Scottish Government’s commitment in the Programme for Scotland to ensure fair funding, clarity and parity for students. In particular, discussion centred on the priorities for the effective implementation of the Framework for Fair Access.
Attendees also considered how best to develop the data infrastructure and strengthen data sharing between relevant agencies to support key stakeholders in higher and further education.
Further sessions looked at strengthening transitions into higher education from further education, as called for in The Scottish Government’s A Blueprint for Fairness: Final Report of the Commission on Widening Access.
Attendees also assessed progression, through a focus on best practice, from Higher National to Degrees, and other forms of flexible learner pathways, along with the work of the recently established National Articulation Forum in expanding full credit articulation to more students.
