Aims and objectives

Through effective collaboration, Higher Futures will:
  • Enhance the supply of higher education provision and transform institutional cultures, processes and procedures;
  • Improve progression opportunities to higher education through vocational routes;
  • Increase demand from employers and vocational learners for higher level skills and education;
  • Improve access to information, advice and guidance (IAG) and transition support.
This will be achieved by:
  • Building on existing areas of excellence and linking with other local partnerships, ensuring the continuation and integration of Higher Futures' effective working practices;
  • Developing shared agreements and practices across the network through the implementation of a Vocational Learner Progression Framework - removing barriers, facilitating attitudinal change, supporting and increasing learner progression;
  • Actively engaging employers to influence curriculum design, content and accessibility, and to generate increased awareness and take up of higher education by employers, training providers and vocational learners;
  • Improving information, advice and guidance, and providing enhanced support, to ensure vocational and work-based learners achieve their potential.
