30 years of our 2+2 degree pathway

"The Centre for Lifelong Learning this year celebrates thirty years of our 2+2 degree programme. The University of Warwick welcomed its first 2+2 students in 1991 with the desire to provide students without traditional qualifications the opportunity to study for their degree. Since then, we have welcomed many committed students with the desire to achieve a degree qualification and further their careers. Our students have a wealth of personal and professional experience which enriches our learning community here in CLL. Each year, my colleagues and I are incredibly proud of our students, balancing their studies alongside their work and family commitments, none more so than this year. I am delighted to see that our 2+2 programme continues to be highly valued by the University, while bringing opportunities for education and growing employability within the local community."

Professor Ruth Hewston, Head of Department

Revisiting Bill Law’s DOTS, Community Interaction, and Career Learning Theories

In a recent seminar, Phil McCash paid tribute to the seminal work of Bill Law whose work is known to many in the career development field. Phil argued that Bill’s ideas were ahead of their time in their focus on the role of gender and ethnicity in career development along with other community influences. The role of learning in the work of career development professionals was also emphasised. Bill Law, it was argued, helped us better understand the who, what, how, where, and why of career development.

A written copy and video recording of Phil’s presentation are available here:
