English across the sectors

Overview

This report offers an insight into the complex and problematic issue of transition from sixth form to higher education English.  It explores the extent to which a gulf exists in the pedagogy of the discipline at the two levels, and the implications of this for the experiences and expectations of  school students, university students and their teachers. This report is of interest to anyone teaching English at university level; especially to those with responsibility for level 1 students and retention issues.
