We are seeking subject experts and provider representatives to attend Access to HE Diploma validation panels in 2020.

Subjects include creative and performing industries, Social Sciences, Nursing, Midwifery and Health, and Humanities.

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 can be in person* or online – specialist software is not required as we will send you meeting details.

*Update: 16th March 2020

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the decision to host the panels for 26/03/2020 online only.

Please keep checking this webpage for updates about future panels.
