The emergence of collaborative partnerships to produce undergraduate programmes in response to government policy and employer workforce development needs provides a rich environment for the study of curriculum innovation. This paper presents the findings of a collective case study of six undergraduate programmes developed by consortia involving employer groups across all sectors; further education colleges, and three higher education institutions. In this paper, the barriers that emerged are analysed and a model of five major groups are identified: resource; skills; quality assurance; cultural and external barriers. The nature of the problems that these barriers present are found to vary and the paper suggests a typology relating to the prevalence and significance of the barriers, and the degree of action required by the development team.
