Access to Higher Education Diploma (Business and Management)

Take the first step towards a new career by studying the Access to Higher Education Diploma (Business and Management). Delivered by Dimensions Training Solutions, the course acts as an alternative to A-Levels. If you don’t have the grades you need to apply for a business degree course at university, this programme is for you. Start a flexible distance learning qualification and work from home, when it suits you.

The course is designed for learners with an interest in the theory and practice of management in a business environment. You’ll explore a range of topics including employment law, communication and HR management. Discover more about consumer legislation and making management decisions. This course will help you to develop your knowledge on planning, allocating resources and working in a team.

You’ll also prepare for university with modules that focus on study skills, such as how to research independently and prepare assignments.

How does my Access to Higher Education Diploma work?

Learn through interactive course materials, with the support of a dedicated personal tutor. You can get in touch via phone, email or Skype to discuss your progress and ask for advice. Stay connected by getting to know our vibrant learner community, using a unique online platform, and share your thoughts on our student forum.

By studying online, you aren’t restricted by term dates, and you don’t need to find the time to attend classes. You can tailor your studying to fit around family life and work commitments.

How will my Access to Higher Education Diploma be assessed?

Access to Higher Education Diplomas are made up of a variety of units, that have an assignment at the end. Assignments will be marked by your personal tutor and count towards learning credits. 60 learning credits are needed to achieve the Access to Higher Education Diploma, with 45 graded as a Pass, Merit or Distinction and 15 ungraded.

What happens after the Access to Higher Education Diploma?

Once your Access to Higher Education Diploma is complete, you’ll have the knowledge and skills you need to make the step up to university study. You can apply for a business and management degree course, specialising in areas such as international business and HR management.

If you have some experience in business, but want to add to your qualifications, a degree will improve your job prospects, making higher level roles accessible.

Transferable skills gained from a business degree are highly sought after by employers. You could go on to pursue a career in sales, HR, management consultancy and marketing, or take on a junior manager role.
