Glasgow Caledonian University’s College Connect Strategy 2013-2020 has been shortlisted for the Universities Association for Lifelong Learning (UALL) Award 2015.

The strategy, launched in 2014, provides a framework for the University to support articulating students and to drive forward its strong relationships with its partner colleges. It aims to achieve an increase in the numbers of students recruited through articulation from 610 in the period 2012-13 to 1000 post 2015-16.   

The UALL Awards recognise and celebrate projects, programmes and practices that promote lifelong learning in the higher education sector. The scheme runs annually and entries are assessed on the basis of four criteria: innovation and creativity, sustainability, impact and transferability.

Director of College Connect, Professor Ruth Whittaker, said: “It is an honour to be shortlisted for the UALL Award and we are delighted that College Connect has been recognised for the contribution it is making to lifelong learning and widening participation”.  

All shortlisted applications have been invited to present at the UALL 2015 Annual Conference, where the winner be announced. The winner will receive a free place at the 2016 Annual Conference.
