HEART/Bradford College invite you to attend this Colloquium which follows on from that delivered as part of the recent, highly successful, CATS Pilot Project led by HEART and delivering transparent progression and credit exemption from Chartered Management Institute and Institute of Leadership & Management qualifications.

We now seek to build on the model and processes developed to explore, identify and take forward action with other curriculum areas, sectors and professions with an ultimate aim to secure additional progression and credit exemption agreements, offering swifter completion and reduced fees for those progressing.   We are delighted that input from Manuel Souto-Otero, author of the recent HEA review of CATS policy and practice and Aileen Ponton, Chief Executive of the Scottish Credit & Qualification Framework, seen as a leading nation in CATS policy and practice, will help frame discussions and actions.

The colloquium aims to enhance CATS practice supporting practitioners, providers, businesses and learners to find real transferable value in credits and thereby support enhanced progression.  If CATS can become a reality it offers economic benefits for all, makes progression pathways much clearer and potentially encourages more part-time learners to enter higher education thereby stemming the recent and significant decline in applications from this group.

Please join this community of practice and come along to the colloquium – we are seeking a broad range of voices and opinion in order to push the debate forward.  Come and have your say.
