Guidance, reports and publications

Student Success Frameworks Series

Best practice frameworks, informed by research, developed with the sector for the sector

The issues impacting on student success are broad and complex, having a shared point of reference and common language to discuss, shape and review policy, process and practice can therefore be an extremely effective way of applying a consistent methodology to leading change. Engaging with our research-informed frameworks in combination, will help identify smarter ways of working. This is achieved through identifying synergies between key strategic priorities that all underpin teaching excellence and the aspiration to support student success in its broadest sense.

Framework for Flexible Learning in Higher Education

Advance HE believes that flexible learning is about empowering students by offering them choices in how, what, when and where they learn: the pace, place and mode of delivery. Given that flexible learning requires a partnership between all stakeholders, including employers (where relevant), this framework is intended for a wide audience. In particular, it is for those working in higher education (HE) with responsibilities for decision-making in areas such as strategic planning, programme development, administrative systems and structures, technological infrastructures relating to learning and teaching, and employer engagement.
