  The attempt to recruit non-traditional students to health and social work is not just to compensate for the decreased availability of traditional students but because it is socially just. The non-traditional student journey can be lengthy; starting with community-based Widening Access courses then typically on to Access courses in Further Education, before entering Higher Education.

Lessons for practice teachers dealing with increased learner diversity are outlined
