Widening Participation, Higher Education and Non-Traditional Students : Supporting Transitions Through Foundation Programmes Hardback
Edited by Catherine Marshall, Sam Nolan, Douglas Newton
This book highlights the problems that have developed as students lack either the social or cultural capital to take the opportunity of Higher Education through conventional routes.
This might be due to leaving school early, lacking entry qualifications or wanting to further their education and prospects after entering the workplace.
Foundation courses help to widen participation and create a route towards higher education.
This book offers tried and tested practical solutions, from the notion of widening participation, to recruitment of students and to ways of helping them to make the most of themselves and develop the skills they need to progress on degree courses of their choice.
