Hi Maeve,

We find the same and approach it in a very similar way to yourself. It is a challenge as learners do meander through different discipline areas as they go through life often determined by workplace needs or promotional opportunities. The challenge to disentangle the learners ability to succeed at a given level on the framework, to the theoretical underpinnings of a discipline area is a question we consider often. It also appears to be a challenge at the undergraduate rather than at the postgraduate level where it isn’t expected that one would have a direct cognate match to the postgraduate area of study.
We haven’t cracked that nut yet and look forward to seeing if anyone has trialled any solutions.
