An introduction to SEEC
Welcome to SEEC
SEEC* is a highly respected authority in the existing and developing field of Credit Accumulation and Transfer (CATS) at higher education levels. SEEC serves as a reference point on credit-based learning, structures and processes in the UK and, now, in the developing field of European credit.
Our website tells you more about who we are and what we do, and answers frequently asked questions such as:
- What’s credit? The basics of credit for learning, including guidance on accreditation of prior learning, for learners, employers and educational organisations
- Why be a SEEC member? How an educational or professional institution, or an individual working in the field of academic credit, can become a member of SEEC, to gain from the professional support it offers
- What’s in it for us? SEEC’s regular professional development events - one day seminars and workshops on the practical implementation of credit processes and applications
- How can I get support and discuss ideas about using credit? Join SEEC network groups based around key issues under discussion in the HE field
- What do you publish ? Some of our books and pamphlets are available online as free downloads, and you can purchase others
- Can I publish or present a paper through SEEC ? Annual conference booking, reports and past papers.
- What else? See the range of consultations and reports that we have developed, and are currently involved in, stimulating debate on all aspects of credit and related issues and contributing to continuing professional development
*Originally the South East England Consortium for Credit Accumulation & Transfer, SEEC has grown to cover institutions in the south and southern midlands of the UK. NUCCAT is the corresponding consortium for the northern half of UK, and HE organisations can belong to both consortia.
