Opportunity to collaborate with the University of Chichester to create short courses/ accredited modules to enhance professional development and work towards a degree
As many of you will know, the government will be changing the way it supports and funds lifelong learning in 2025, this will include Further and Higher Education. Universities will be able to offer short, accredited courses which can stand alone as professional development and/or be part of a modular degree which can be gained over time. These modules will be offered flexibly through blended, online and face to face sessions and will be offered during evenings and weekends. This will ensure that those who are working will not need to take time off work in order to access higher education.
The University of Chichester has a strong widening participation ethos and is particularly keen to ensure that lifelong learning opportunities can be effectively introduced and are useful for those working in the local community. In order for this to happen, we would like to invite local employers and businesses to collaborate with us in the creation (and potentially delivery) of these courses. We are currently in the process of bidding to be part of a project to pilot this new form of Higher Education from September 2022.
If being part of project is something that you or your business would be interested in, or if you would like further information, please contact:
Becky Edwards (senior lecturer in the Institute of Education, Social and Life Sciences)
If you would like to be part of the bid to help us pilot and evaluate the concept, please contact Becky by Monday 13th September
