Abstract: The aim of the project is to devise a Wolverhampton On Line Learning Framework (WOLF) programme specifically designed for use by students undertaking nursing access courses at local colleges of Further Education. There are three main intended outcomes: 1) provide the students with a ‘taster’ of the realty of pre registration nurse training both theoretically and practically hoping that this will aid retention rates and increase the employability of the students on qualifying. 2) To create a smooth transition from studying as a student at further education level to higher education level. It is further hoped that the introduction to WOLF prior to commencement on pre-registration courses will improve students’ key skills in preparation for studying at higher education level and familiarise the students with WOLF as it is used quite extensively in pre-registration training. 3) To generate enthusiasm and interest in the pre-registration nurse training available at Wolverhampton University, with the assistance of Technology Supported Learning, to aid recruitment. The outcomes link with the School of Health Teaching and Learning Strategy (2001) where it states a mechanism should be provided for interactive information exchange and a resource should be provided for developing key skills in I.T.
