This project was funded by Greater Manchester Aimhigher as one aspect of its remit in relation to raising aspirations and attainment. Foundation degrees, as a new work related qualification, were provided nationally from 2001. In general, however, they were developed by individual departments in HEIs or by two or three colleges and a HEI and although there was collaboration in the bidding process for extra foundation degree numbers the knowledge of the state of play in the sub-region was contained in HESA press releases. HESA collects data from HEIs in November but publication of these takes some time. This research project was an attempt to detail what was going on out there in institutions and what exactly were the experiences of practitioners, employers and students of foundation degrees in the sub-region.
