Adult Learners Progressing to University Celebrate their Success


Acess Presentation 2013

Adult learners at Tresham are being congratulated for their hard work and determination to succeed at an awards ceremony for more than 100 students who completed the Access to Higher Education programme this summer. The award ceremony  took place at the college’s Windmill Avenue campus, Kettering on Thursday 5thSeptember 2013.

The Access to Higher Education programme offered at Tresham has been specially designed for adults who lack the formal qualifications necessary to study at a higher level, or those who have been out of education for some time and want to return to learning.

The course provides the opportunity for groups that are typically under represented in Higher Education providing flexible teaching in a supportive environment, and timetabled so that people with school-age children can attend (running between 9.30am and 3pm).

129 students have successfully completed the Access course at Tresham this year, and will receive awards of achievement before starting university course or employment later this month.

Students are now going on to study a range of degrees including: Nursing, Event Management, Midwifery, American Studies, Dentistry, Linguistics, Criminology and History at universities including The University of Northampton, De Montfort, Westminster, Lincoln and Leicester.
