Degrees of success: progressing to Higher Education through vocational pathways

Widening participation in Higher Education crucially depends upon recruiting more young people from vocational pathways.


Widening participation in Higher Education crucially depends upon recruiting more young people from vocational pathways. But what sorts of opportunities do such learners access in Higher Education? Do these offer real opportunities for increasing social mobility and raising earnings? Is there any parity of esteem between academic and vocational progression routes? What are the challenges that students from more vocational programmes face when they enter Higher Education? How can we better support their learning and so improve success rates?

These questions are answered drawing upon the results from a two year ESRC funded research programme employing the analysis of both large scale administrative data sets and more focussed qualitative research.
