EV Roadshows

During COVID-19 restrictions, we are only able to offer remote external verification activity. Previously, EV Roadshows were also available at a range of venues across the country and you could book to see an external verifier for a set time slot and have your learner evidence reviewed. Further updates on these will be provided as and when restrictions allow.

To book your EV activity, please visit the EV activity page here for our booking form and more information.
 

MIA Management System

MIA is AIM's new organisation management system. More information, including dates for training, can be found on our MIA page.
 

Access to Higher Education Clinic and Q&A Sessions

The sessions will run via GoToMeeting for two hours and are open for all AIM provider staff involved in Access to Higher Education. These themed clinics will focus on a different aspect of Access to HE each month with an opportunity for questions from providers related to the clinic or general Access questions. Each month will include an update to awarding and assessment of AHE in 2020/2021 with updates from QAA. This may also be used as a working group to discuss and provide feedback on new and upcoming developments for Access at AIM.
