Access Validating Agency 20th Anniversary

2016 is our 20th anniversary year of awarding Access to HE qualifications.  Part of our celebrations included a commemorative booklet which timelines the region's Access to HE achievements over the past 20 years including the inspirational stories of some of our learners.

Please click the image below to view the booklet.

We also held a landmark event held at The Sage, Gateshead on the 11th March 2016.  The event put the learners and educators at the heart of proceedings with both students and Providers receiving awards for outstanding achievements.

One Awards Access Validating Agency 20th Anniversary 1996-2016 - A brief history (pdf presentation)

“One Awards' innovative results service has been a fantastic development for universities and allows us to check students' achievement immediately ourselves. This is an excellent service which means that we are able to confirm student places quickly and effectively without having to follow up with providers and students or wait for results to be sent on to us. This is because their certification turnaround time of less than two days allows One Awards to process student results almost as soon as the colleges/providers have provided the final verified results. This really does help us put students at the heart of our confirmation process”.
