Access to HE and Level 3 Courses

Learn Telford is Launching Access to HE (Higher Education) Diploma Courses in September 2020


We are excited to announce that in response to demand from our learners, that we are launching a range of Access to HE Diploma courses and other Level 3 courses.

We have 2 Access to HE courses starting in September 2020! These are the Access to HE Diploma (Education) and Access to HE Diploma (Health Professions). In light of the current Covid-19 situation, we have a great online facility so that you can learn from home. As and when we can, we will hold face to face sessions in a classroom, but until then we will schedule weekly video sessions using Zoom or Microsoft Teams. You will also benefit from regular one to one catch-ups with your tutor during the course.

You can find out more below!
