Understanding Access to HE for adults with a service background
New research by Dr Mel Macer of Bath Spa University has identified a lack of awareness of the Access to HE Diploma within the Armed Services.
QAA is working with a number of organisations to raise awareness of the qualification to address the recommendations of the report, which draws on the experiences of Service leaders and their dependents. A project to produce bespoke information for Service leavers, their families and education advisers is also underway.
The Access to HE Diploma may be of interest to forces personnel coming to the end of their service, who are looking to change career or progress in their current profession, or are considering higher education. The Diploma, which is specifically designed for adults returning to education, provides a supportive, encouraging and challenging environment to help adults make the transition to higher education.
