Fwd: FW: Fast Track and Flexible Learning Conference

'Getting there by Degrees':

A Conference on Fast Track and Flexible Learning

Friday 18th June 2010, University of Plymouth

Higher Education is being asked to become "more flexible" and to explore alternative forms of provision, such as "fast-track" honours degrees, delivered over two years rather than three, as well as a strengthened commitment to short courses, CPD and up-skilling.  These agendas featured prominently in BIS' recent Higher Education blueprint "Higher Ambitions". This conference will explore the implications of these developments and identify the likely opportunities and challenges.

This will be the first national conference with a focus on two-year degrees and one of the first to consider progress on the post-Leitch agenda. Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from some of the leading figures in these areas and to benefit from their experiences and insights. The programme will include keynotes and workshops from senior colleagues at HEFCE and from universities which are among the leaders in fast-track and flexible learning.

Attendance will be free of charge.
