We are seeking subject experts and provider representatives to attend Access to HE Diploma validation panels in 2023.

Panels are an excellent opportunity for you to collaborate and discuss the structure and content of diplomas with other providers – they can also contribute to your personal development and CPD.

To meet QAA licence requirements the composition of panels must be represented by members with relevant experience and expertise in:

  • the delivery and assessment of Access to HE courses
  • curriculum knowledge relevant to the Diploma(s) and all the units being considered
  • the delivery of HE programmes, in areas indicated as intended progression routes for the Diploma(s) being considered
  • QAA’s current requirements about the Access to HE Diploma

If you have not attended a validation panel before, we are always excited to accept new members and welcome your contribution. Attendance will be online – specialist software is not required.

Validation panel dates

Our panels are exclusive to Centres approved to deliver Access to HE with Gateway Qualifications.
