Summary

This research report was commissioned by the Higher Education Academy and produced by the Mixed Economy group of FE colleges. Higher Education (HE) in Further Education (FE) is described by those who deliver it as both distinctive and different from HE delivered in a more traditional university setting. The research sets out to test the proposition that a different style of teaching and learning exists within the HE in FE sector. The research findings are based in the responses of 559 staff who teach within some 30 colleges. The findings will be of interest to anyone working on the design of HE curricula in college settings
