It provides a good foundation for progression into Higher Education because it includes not only subject specific knowledge, but also study skills and professional development. It also includes Level 2 Literacy and Numeracy for those who do not have these essential qualifications. The programme was designed specifically for mature learners who have few formal qualification and who have had a break from education. From September 2008 the qualification will become an Access to HE Diploma consisting of standardised, regional, core and optional units.

The programme is also designed to accommodate the needs of parents and people who have flexible work patterns.
