Abstract

This report is an evauation of the pilot delivery of the OU’s 'An Introduction to Health and Social Care (K101)' combined with a level 3 NVQ in Health and Social Care, to Newcastle City Council employees. The integrated award was delivered with support of Bridges to Learning, a partnership initiative in the North East of England between UNISON, the Open University (OU) and the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA). The aims of this partnership are to develop progression routes for individuals in the health and social care sectors to progress across the FE/HE divide, through the activities of Union Learning Representatives working with their employers. The evaluation covered three dimensions: the curriculum and its delivery; the impact of this educational experience on practice; the role of Bridges to Learning in setting up the pilot, supporting students and subsequent impact on retention.
