The AoC Scholarship Framework is the primary output from the HEFCE-funded Scholarship Project. The project’s major aims were to (a) enhance understanding of scholarship and applied research in college higher education (b) develop a range of resources to support scholarship and (c) support the development and embedding of a distinct college higher education scholarly ethos across the sector associated with technical education at Levels 4 and higher.

The Framework website, see www.thescholarshipframework.ac.uk, presents a Framework for scholarship and scholarly activity and a free toolkit of resources aimed at supporting English colleges with higher education provision. It has a life beyond the Scholarship Project, and has been available since June 2018 and we want to evaluate its usage, relevance and usefulness. This survey is one element in a comprehensive evaluation exercise.

Please submit your response by 4pm on Wednesday 15 May 2019.
 
All answers will be confidential to the evaluation team and will not be shared with any other partner or agency.
 
If you have any queries please email: scholarship@aoc.co.uk
