Safer Transit: supporting transition from further to higher education in social care and social work in Scotland

Published on 29 Sep 2006

This report discusses the results of commissioned research into the type of learning materials required to support the transition for students moving from the HNC in Social Care to the social work degree. The key questions to be addressed were: what issues do these students face; and what learning materials might help? As part of the research carried out on behalf of the Institute, an online survey was disseminated to relevant special interest mailing lists and targeted individuals between 29 March and 11 April 2006. In total 63 responses were received.
