The Escalate project addresses a major shift at the University of Bradford in the delivery of academic credit-bearing courses based on employer needs.

The key shift is for the university to plan using a needs analysis approach to the delivery of learning and training at the time and location the employer wishes, and to deliver in module sizes that are appropriate. Alongside this shift, the university will work with employer partners who will commit to learning driven by their own strategic objectives.

Initially Escalate will work with a number of large public sector bodies and then roll out the programme to the private sector, and small and medium-sized enterprises.

The project builds on the existing graduate employment achievements that are an integral part of Bradford’s provision and focuses on developing provision for those already in the workplace. This requires changes in the academic framework across the university so that it becomes more focused on part-time provision.
