Not everyone on the Access to Teacher Training course has had a seamless journey. There are students who have had a turbulent relationship with education, whilst others may have encountered circumstances that prevented them from fully achieving their potential.
At Kingston College, the Access to HE courses provide students with an opportunity to get back on track with their studies towards a career that motivates them. Statistics from the official Access to HE website states that 93% of higher education leavers with an Access to HE Diploma were in employment or further study six months after they completed their course.
So, it’s no wonder that more people are opting for this qualification as it also encourages widening participating with 23% of students being from low participation areas.
