External Collaborations

Linking London has undertaken various projects with external organisations over the past few years.

HE in London

Higher Education in London is an innovative project to provide a pan-London single point of contact for HE outreach in the capital.

Higher Education in London is funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), and was set up and is supported by the three Networks for Collaborative Outreach: Aimhigher London South, AccessHE and Linking London.

HE in London's aim is to make it as easy as possible for teachers, advisers and college lecturers to find important information that will help them give the best advice to learners hoping to progress to higher education.

HE in London enables school and college based practitioners to access resources, find out about events, post requests for further information and activities, and hear about the latest news. To visit the website, please click here.

CATS Project

  • The Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS) is used by many universities in the United Kingdom to monitor and reward passage through a modular degree course and to facilitate movement between courses and institutions. Linking London was awarded funding through BIS to run a one year project entitled: ‘A collaborative curriculum project, using a common approach to credit accumulation and transfer in management provision to increase progression.’ This project aimed to develop a flexible credit-based curriculum in the area of management courses, to support the progression of students from level 3 programmes in business or vocational courses at a range of further education colleges in London to Level 4 courses in management and related disciplines in universities in the capital.

Gender, Lifelong Learning and Social Class (GLAS) - a lifelong learning initiative across Europe

  • In 2011 Linking London was successful in securing co-funding from the flagship European funding programme in the field of education and training, the Lifelong Learning Programme (under the sectorial sub programme Erasmus for Higher Education).

    The GLAS project platformed the HEFCE initiative of Lifelong Learning Networks in Europe by comparing, developing and disseminating best available practice in supporting the social inclusion and progression of working class individuals and, in particular women, in lifelong learning.
