Kingston University has pledged to increase the number of vocational learners entering higher education by signing an important agreement with the West London Lifelong Learning Network.
The West London Lifelong Learning Network Progression Accord will help develop additional activities, relationships and resources to increase the number of vocational learners progressing through higher education.
Over the next three years, the two organisations will work together to encourage more students to study to update their existing qualifications and enhance their careers.
Professor Martyn Jones, Pro Vice-Chancellor for External Affairs and Business Development at Kingston University, officially signed the new progression accord at Ealing and West London College this month. Professor Jones said the accord formed part of the University’s continued commitment to encourage more people to apply to university.
“This agreement will allow students to find out more about the range of courses that may be available to them and how these courses can help them accelerate their success and prepare them for their future careers,” he said.
“The accord will play an important role in our work to increase the number of vocational learners going on to higher education.”
Kingston University also hosts and is a member of the neighbouring South London Life Long Learning Network, which helps vocational learners in the capital.
