Printed recruitment material

We all know what a great option Access to HE Diploma courses are.  We’ve seen the results, which can be transformational. But getting the message out to potential students takes time, resource and effort.

So, to help you promote your Access to HE courses and spread the word about these amazing qualifications we have designed and printed a range of posters for you to use, either in your centre, at your local supermarket or library or local community centre. Tell us how many you would like* and what size and we’ll post these out to you.

Moderator support for assignment briefs

We provide a free assignment checking service for new and existing providers (one per diploma - additional checks are chargeable). This will help give you the confidence that your assignments are ready before going into the moderation process.

Regional hubs

Whilst virtual events have become the norm, we feel there are plenty of reasons why in-person events should be back on the agenda:

Build rapport and relationships: Meeting in person fosters a stronger sense of connection and trust between people leading to improved collaboration, teamwork, and a more positive working relationship.
Enhanced engagement: In-person meetings can be more engaging and interactive, especially if served with a cake or a croissant! 
Networking opportunities: In-person meetings provide valuable networking opportunities across the Access to HE community. They provide a place to meet and connect with colleagues with similar interests and backgrounds and to share good practice.
Our new regional hubs will be local to you and offer a relaxed, welcoming and informative one hour sessions for us to chat and share experiences over a coffee and nibble! To fit in with work, we’re offering breakfast and twilight sessions every term. If in-person events are not for you, or you prefer the convenience of an on-line event, we’ve got that covered too with our Lunch and Learn Online.

Information on dates, venues and how to book will be made available shortly. We look forward to seeing you!
