Policy Documents

MEG responds to develpoments in HE and FE through contributing to consultation documents but also generates research and and publishes articles which both stimulate discussion and raise awareness of college-based HE. This section of the website offers:

- a selection of our consultation responses
- examples of documents which we drafted jointly with other agencies and
- a number of research dcouments covering a general overview of HE in FE, Scholarly Activity and Progression to HE.

Individual MEG member colleges have an active interest in research and scholarly activity and many hold annual HE in FE research conferences in partnership with their local universities. Examples of work completed in-house by HE teaching staff will be posted on this part of the site in the near future.
