SOCIAL DIMENSIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION
The Chairman of the Higher Education Authority, Michael Kelly, has called on higher education institutions to significantly increase their portfolio of flexible and part-time learning opportunities. He argues that the limited availability of part-time opportunities, particularly at undergraduate level, is a weakness that must be addressed as a matter of urgency.
Mr. Kelly was speaking at the opening of the European University-Business Co-operation Conference in Malahide this morning.
A new unit that encourages students to explore options in further and higher education is being piloted in schools this Autumn. The unit is for Transition Year students and has been developed through a joint initiative by the HEA and NCCA, with advice from a working group of teachers, guidance counsellors and access officers. Following the pilot phase it is planned that the unit will be made available to all schools.
