Abstract

A collaboration between five universities (Coventry,
Aston, Derby, Nottingham Trent and Wolverhampton)
involved in providing HE STEM courses for part-time
students in the workforce has produced this guidance
on part-time provision aimed at those wishing to
enhance existing provision or create new courses. The
guidance has been based on the experience of the
collaborators, on examples of effective practice within
the collaborating universities and at other institutions
in the Midlands and East Anglia region, on discussions
with selected employers, and on the views of students
expressed via an online questionnaire. The guidance
includes approaches to key issues including range
of provision, characteristics of part-time students,
employer perspectives, delivery arrangements,
support for part-time students, part-time students
as a resource, flexible learning, tailored and workbased
provision, the student view, challenges and
barriers, and approaches to increasing participation.
