In order to address the particular needs and trajectories of this under- researched group we adopt an explore-design-implement-evaluate methodology. We aim to develop evidence-based interventions to transform the transition of BTEC students into HE and in this way to reduce differential educational outcomes. This will involve: 

  1. An investigation intervention to explore BTEC students educational experiences across the FE/HE transition, building on a current case study being developed by Pearson and the University of Exeter, and
  2. Designing, implementing and evaluating evidence-based interventions to address identified issues of transition.
