University of Hull Educational Partnerships
Last updated on 5/13/2016 Print this page
The University of Hull has a range of Educational Partners from
sub-regional, national and international organisations. Some of
these partners collaboratively deliver University of Hull HE Level
awards and others work with the University to raise the aspirations
of pre-19 and adult students to progress to Higher Education.
The Federation is a group of institutions delivering Higher
Education, whose main validation partner is the University of Hull.
Federation members work between and across institutions to provide
HE-level learning opportunities across the sub-regions.
The Associate Institutions Network
The Associate Institutions Network is a pre-HE partnership with
schools and colleges, with the tripartite focus of activity with
associate institutions: social responsibility in addressing the
social and economic challenges in the region; progression and
student recruitment; and collaborative debate on pertinent
educational policy and practice, including the implications for
teacher training and continuing professional development.
International Partnerships are an important aspect of the
University's relationships. The University has a range of
international relationships with partner institutions. These
relationships cover progression agreements and dual award
arrangements, to the delivery of distance-taught programmes for
University of Hull awards. The University also engages in joint
research projects and post graduate delivery.
Access and Widening Participation
The University of Hull was a partner and host of Aimhigher
Humber and the Yorkshire, and Humber East Lifelong Learning Network
(YHELLN), in support of widening participation and socio-economic
regeneration. YHELLN had a key role in supporting the development
of progression agreements and flexible learning across key
vocational areas. The University of Hull was also a partner with
Aimhigher York and North Yorkshire. Aimhigher Humber and Aimhigher
York and North Yorkshire were important partners supporting the
raising of achievement and aspiration of target populations of
young people across the sub-regions.
In response to the closure of Aimhigher in July 2011, the
University created an Access Office to continue to support partner
schools, academies and colleges in terms of encouraging Access to
HE for under-represented groups.
Other Partnerships include University faculties and colleagues
working with sub-regional partners in local authorities, schools
and colleges in fields, such as progression to HE, teacher
training, professional development, ‘Every Child Matters' policy
subgroups. Similarly, health and NHS partnerships, as well as
business groups and network-based trainers, are also important
areas of engagement for the University and the sub-regions.
