External Collaborations

In the past Linking London has worked with many external organisations on a variety of different projects. Below illustrates the external collaborations we have been involved with: 

HE in London

Originally funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) through the National Networks of Collaborative Outreach (NNCO) programme, HE in London was set up in 2015. It was set up and supported by the three London NNCO’s:  Aimhigher London South, AccessHE and Linking London and hosted by Birkbeck, University of London.  Today, now that the NNCO programme has ended, Linking London runs and funds this website.

HE in London is an innovative website that provides a pan- London single point of contact for HE outreach in the capital. HE in London’s aim is to make it as easy as possible for staff in schools and colleges, especially those that advise learners on their progression options, 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

        • Providing evidence on existing patterns of progression from FE into HE
        • Identifying gaps in key sectors which are critical to London’s economy

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.
