Abstract / Description

In line with Government targets to widen access to higher education in the UK (Clark, 2003; DfES, 2003), the Centre for Civil Aviation [CCA] at London Metropolitan University developed a Foundation Degree in Aviation Management & Operations, which was launched in September 2002. The course was the first of its kind and attracted a diverse group of students. While such diversity was good for Government targets on widening access, it highlighted potential implications vis-à-vis teaching and learning practice, especially in terms of balancing the ability of such diversity in the early stages of the course.
