Webinar – Pathways into HE: shifting landscapesOnline event free
The Lifelong Loan Entitlement (LLE) will be introduced for the 2025-26 academic year and universities are already admitting early T level adopters onto engineering courses. Hear from the Department for Education’s leads on LLE and T levels, and the Engineering Council, in preparation for a fully interactive delegate workshop on the topics at the in-person Forum on 12th December.
Can full-time accredited degree courses realistically be broken up into stand-alone part-time modules? What about the alignment with engineering accreditation; will there be a disconnect between what qualification content might belong at different levels and what level of learning outcome might be expected – and how this might relate to international engineering accords? Could engineering benefit from subject changeability through the adoption of try-before-you buy engineering modules at levels 4 and 5 as alternative routes to level 6 which would serve to introduce the subject which is largely not taught in schools? What about study across multiple subjects and providers and the mobility of engineering students in city and rural areas? With regulation on OfS’ mind, have you considered how tricky “continuation”, “completion”, and “progression” might be for short courses which are intended to enable students to study, train, retrain and upskill?
There is a lot to get our heads around, so early engagement on this important topic is crucial.
This is the first of two webinars to introduce the Access and Admissions Forum on the 12th December at City, University of London.
22nd November @ 2pm
- Georgia Scoot-Morrissey – Senior Policy Advisor for T Levels at the Department of Education
- Rob Dennis –Stakeholder Engagement Advisor for Lifelong Learning Entitlement (LLE) at the Department for Education
- Catherine Elliott – Education and Skills Manager at the Engineering Council
The webinar will last 1 hour and 30 minutes.
