This is the first in a series of publications from the Enhancement Theme for Flexible Delivery. It represents the outcomes from one of six development projects supported by the steering committee, which includes a review of flexible programme provision in the Scottish higher education (HE) sector, together with a staff development pack and resource pack.

The project's two strands sought to address practitioners' needs in terms of developing and operating flexible entry (recognising prior informal learning and credit transfer) and flexible programmes (part-time, distance, work-based and negotiated learning) within HEIs in the context of the SCQF.

This overview examines the project in terms of its goals and the approach used to achieve these objectives. It summarises the project's outcomes and raises key issues that have emerged during the project, to help in shaping an agenda for action.
