1 October 2018: Linking London mentioned in Wonkhe article

Last week Wonkhe published a blog written by Camilla Mount, Access and Partnerships Manager at Birkbeck, University of London, focusing on BTEC learners and progression to HE.

The blog highlights the fact that a significant proportion of BTEC learners are from under-represented groups and low income backgrounds and asks the question of university equity departments: if you’re not serious about BTEC, are you really serious about widening participation? 

This timely and well written article also talks about the work of Linking London in bringing universities and colleges together in this context. Our next BTEC Practitioner Group meeting will be held on the 8th November and will provide opportunities to share the latest news, challenges and good practice in supporting BTEC learners to make successful transitions into and through HE. If you are a member and would like to book a place please email info@linkinglondon.ac.uk
