Pre-entry qualifications – staff perceptions versus reality

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The Student Transition and Retention Project (STAR, 2007 Student Transition and Retention Project) conference in 2004 raised awareness of the gap between the expectations of first-year lecturers at Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and the reality of the secondary school curriculum. This article will provide an introduction to the issues covered by the conference. Examples will be provided of changes in practice that have addressed the issues raised. The aim is both to identify ways in which practice can be modified to support students through the period of transition, taking a realistic starting point, and to demonstrate a developmental way of approaching the problem.
