While BTECs have been broadly praised for having widened access to university over recent years, it is recognised that this brings its challenges to Higher Education providers, Schools and Colleges. Recent national reports have highlighted that with the growth of students with BTEC qualifications entering into higher education, an imperative for Universities, working in partnerships with Schools and Colleges, will be to strengthen the support for Higher Education practitioners, Secondary Education providers and students. This article introduces an initiative at the University of Lincoln that begins to build bridges to support BTEC students' success.
