Abstract

The symposium paper addresses the conference theme of the relationship between policy, practice and research by critically examining policy discourse in lifelong learning and the role of research in understanding policy effects. Empirical and theoretical research on the rationale and practice of examples of short cycle HE including sub-bachelors degree level qualifications, such as Higher National Certificates and Diplomas and Foundation Degrees are the focus.
