In terms of higher education the role of transition into and through the first year are crucial for increasing access and for improving retention and success. Thus the LiTE project aims to understand current national strategies which support the transition from non-compulsory or mature learners to HE and build on, or develop new, strategies and resources. It focuses predominantly on widening participation and will therefore target non-traditional HE learners and underrepresented groups. The project aims to develop supportive strategies and resources for both the transition of these groups to HE and completion of their first year of HE study.
- Analysis and comparison of existing strategies and resources which support the transition phase and first year of study.
- Development of models for implementation and an interactive student resource, along with advice and guidance materials for staff.
