4th Annual conference
Individual HE and school partnership programmes have replaced the national structure and standards of Aimhigher, and collaboration between Higher Education Institutions and schools is entering a new era.
In accordance with their 2012-13 access agreements, HEIs are initiating and administrating a huge variety of different local and regional programmes and forms of partnership, some for the first time. Severe financial penalties from HEFCE are threatened for those who fail to deliver, and OFFA has the power to prevent non-compliant institutions from charging above the standard level of tuition fees in future years.
HEIs and schools who are pioneering innovative ways of working together discuss their methods and provide an in-depth look at activities and relationships that are cost-effective and productive.
Regional and national consortia and networks discuss how to maintain a broad perspective on partnerships in this new funding landscape.
This broadcast sees Vice-Chancellors, Headteachers and College Principals, along with Partnership and Widening Participation Managers, discuss the future of HE and school partnerships.
