Rami, Justin; Kenny, Michael; O'Sullivan, Rory; Murphy, Caitriona; Duffy, Christy; Wafer, Andrina
This conference and working paper identifies institutional, infrastructural and cultural barriers with regard to progression from Further Education and Training providers (FET) and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) . It reveals a lack of data thus far for the Leinster region regarding progression, and for student success or otherwise once in the HEI environment. It names issues such as trust in curriculum and assessment outcomes and processes, and the fundamental challenge of competitiveness on a local scale. It draws attention to the need in particular for baseline information and transparency for learners and for us as a region, determined as we are to enable more seamless progression, providing relevant opportunities for future skills and other needs for learners regardless of pathway.
