Gateway Qualifications is an Access Validating Agency (AVA) licenced by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).

Our Access to HE Diploma provides the choice between an off-the-shelf qualification or bespoke options and the ability to mix and match between the two. Also we have recently introduced a number of improvements to ensure a service that is simple, straightforward and effective.

Quality, choice and certainty

With the best possible Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) rating of ‘low risk’ and full compliance with the new diploma specification, our Access to HE Diploma programmes deliver consistent high quality across the range of some 60 titles.

A validation process that is simple and efficient

Our streamlined, free-of-charge validation process is focused on content and for clarity separates centre approval consideration from validation of specific diplomas. This allows each diploma to become available from a number of centres, while maintaining the option for local delivery of bespoke courses.

With our investment making life easier for you

Our non-bureaucratic approach employs smart resources including an on-line databank of more than 1000 units for use in Access courses and an upgraded registration/certification system.

Changes that reflect market demand

Gateway Qualifications’ suite of Access to HE Diplomas provides a resource that achieves the necessary balance between sophistication and simplicity driven by current market demand.

Centre Handbook

We have an Access to HE Centre handbook that looks to provide all the answers about running our Access to HE Diplomas, and is intended to be used by everyone involved in the planning, delivery and assessment of Gateway Qualifications Access to HE Diploma courses; its important you are familiar with this handbook.
