Latest update on Access to HE - summer 2021


Awards Boards

During June and July we have been busy with the completion of Final Moderation and with Final Awards Boards. Across this academic year we have carried out over 60 Final Awards Boards to verify the achievement of the learners, with over 3100 learners awarded with a full Access to HE Diploma. In addition, there are learners who have been awarded partial achievement, a few learners who aim to complete over the summer, and some who are still on program and continuing their studies next academic year.

We would like to congratulate all the learners on their achievements and wish them all the best for the future and to thank all our Centres for their commitment and hard work in another challenging year, which has enabled their learners to succeed in their studies.

We would also like to thank our Curriculum Area Moderators, Centre Reviewers and AVA (Access Validating Agency) staff who were integral to this successful outcome.


Review of Diplomas to be revalidated.

We have recently commenced the review of four current Diplomas, listed below, which will be reviewed and revalidated for delivery from 1st August 2022.

  • Access to Higher Education Diploma (Science)
  • Access to Higher Education Diploma (Humanities)
  • Access to Higher Education Diploma (Health Science)
  • Access to Higher Education Diploma (Building, Civil Engineering and Construction)

The AVA has requested Centres to provide feedback on these Diplomas, to support the review and revalidation processes.
