Access to HE – Extraordinary Regulatory Framework (ERF) Arrangements 2020-21

Now more than ever we are here to support you as you continue to deliver our Access to HE Diplomas to thousands of learners across the country.

Since September 2020, a number of documents and emails have been released or sent to update and advice regarding the Extraordinary Regulatory Framework (ERF) arrangements for the award and assessment of the Access to HE Diploma for 2020-2021. This page brings together all the information in one place for you to locate and access easily.

Adaptations may be necessary to mode of delivery, assessment methodology and or units delivered. It is a QAA requirement that AVAs are informed of any adaptations relating to the pandemic. Therefore, please use the adaptation record to advise the AVA of any adaptations relating to the pandemic, whether being made now or earlier in the course.

If you have previously advised the AVA of adaptations and need to advise further, please add to the record you have already started. The three types of adaptation and three different rationales are already listed on the template for you to select the ones relevant to your adaptation. Please select Yes from the drop down menu. Once completed, please return to as a matter of urgency. Once reviewed by the AVA, these will be returned for your keeping and to add to should further adaptations be required. 

Drop in support clinics will be held on the following dates:

  • Thursday 14th January 12.30-1.15pm
  • Tuesday 19th January 12.30-1.15pm.

(Zoom Links have been sent)

If you need any help or support we are only a phone call, email or video call away. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help you in any way.

Kind regards

Pam Stanway and Laura Walker
