The Impact of Foundation Degrees on Students and the Workplace
- Novotel, York
- 15 November 2007 11:00-15:30
Foundation Degree Forward would like to invite you to a dissemination seminar which has been organised as part of a national study on the impact of Foundation Degrees (Fds) on students and the workplace, two events have been organised:
Novotel York Hotel Fishergate, York, Yorkshire, YO10 4FD
These seminars will provide an opportunity to share experiences of designing and delivering Foundation Degrees, and in particular to discuss aspects of employer engagement.
The main aim of the seminars is to build capacity in the development of Fds and employer engagement.
The study itself has involved student focus groups, student interviews and a survey of students; and employers interviews – all facilitated by named practitioners. Each named
practitioner has also prepared a ‘case study’ of their own Fd which has sought to provide a reflective account of the programme thus far, including its successes and continuing challenges.
Towards the end of each seminar practitioners will reflect on their own inputs to the study thus far, and in particular the usefulness (or otherwise) of producing a reflective narrative of the continuing development of their Fd.
