There is increased interest at policy and practitioner levels in flexible and accessible pathways into and through HE. In 2021/22 the Flexible and Accessible Learning strand of the Enhancement Theme ‘Resilient Learning Communities’ seeks to explore two project areas that imbue the concept of flexibility and accessibility in HE those being focused on Recognition of Prior Learning and Experience (RPL/RPEL) and the use of Micro credentials as a means to access Higher Education and potentially “stack” credit to achieve an HE award. These projects will run in parallel to the ongoing cluster project “Personalised Approaches to Resilience and Community” (PARC) which is piloting diagnostic testing to assess and then develop competencies required for success in HE, the aim of which is to enhance widening participation activities and approaches to supporting students from diverse backgrounds.
