Press release

HELPing the HE in FE SECTOR
Strengthening links between research and practice related to delivering 
higher education in further education is the aim of a new online resource 
launched by the University of Plymouth's Higher Education Learning 
Partnerships (HELP) on Thursday 1 November.

The online publication - The British Journal of Higher Education in Further 
Education (BJHEinFE) - aims to meet the needs of those working in the HE in 
FE sector, which is rapidly expanding due to the growing numbers of 
foundation degrees delivered in FE colleges.

The journal - which is free to users and will give them open access to all 
its content - will be a useful resource for a wide range of researchers, 
policy-makers, practitioners and other professionals involved in education 
or development in communities across the sector.

The BJHEinFE will provide opportunities for the transfer of best practice 
and the exchange and development of knowledge and skills relating to the 
delivery of HE in FE, such as finding effective methods of bringing HE and 
FE staff together to encourage FE students' progression and retention, and 
bringing staff from FE and HE together to ensure mutual understanding 
through curriculum and staff development.

A unique aspect of the journal is that its editorial board - which includes 
representatives from the Learning & Skills Council, universities including 
Derby and Ulster and colleges including  City College Manchester and 
Cornwall College, as well as members of the Plymouth's HELP CETL - 
recognises that some practitioners may not have published work previously. 
The team welcomes first submissions from contributors and will provide 
feedback, support and guidance to encourage contributors to publish.

Speaking about the journal, its editor Dr Neil Witt from the University of 
Plymouth, said: "The emphasis is on providing a vehicle for those involved 
in theory, research and practice to jointly explore ideas using a diverse 
mix of research methods and disciplines."

The BJHEinFE can be accessed at http://www.bjheinfe.org
