In 2010, reflecting the strategic institutional imperative of widening participation and enhancing transition to health programmes, a Scottish nursing community of practice (CoP), was formed to bring together academics from further and higher education, initially for a period of six months. The community was funded by the Greater Glasgow Articulation Partnership (GGAP) and underpinned by Wenger’s (1988) Community of Practice (CoP) model. The CoP focused on exploration of current practice, particularly transition, articulation and the first-year experience in tertiary education.
