Exploring ‘Vocational’ and ‘Academic’ Routes into Higher Education

Date: 13th January 2022

Location: Online (Microsoft Teams)

Please note this event is for Members only

Development of the new T Level Qualifications for post-16 students has renewed the debate about differences between ‘academic’ qualifications, exemplified by A Levels, and ‘vocational’ qualifications such as BTEC. Regardless of a student’s post-16 qualifications embarking on higher education study will inevitably be a challenge. Annette Hayton and Dr Clare Gartland will explore the extent to which what Katartzi and Hayward describe ‘transitional friction’ is linked to post-16 qualifications. The session will include present practice examples from members as well as a panel of expert speakers to inform us about the new qualifications and their potential impact on access and success in HE.
