Abstract

The central Government agenda towards widening participation in Higher Education and its target of 50 % of adults to be involved by 2010 is amongst the drivers towards innovative and changing modes of learning and teaching. A by product of this is the number of students adopting a part-time route toward academic qualification. The ramifications of this involve limited time for personal attendance at teaching institutions and a requirement for directed learning within the framework of the workplace. The interpretation both nationally and internationally of work based learning appears to be inconsistent. The research involved in this paper concludes with a recommendation to identify that model appropriate for students studying toward the awards of Foundation Degree in Architectural Technology and Construction Management at Northumbria University.
