Access to HE Diplomas - Award through Extenuation Webinar
In some exceptional circumstances, through no fault of their own, an Access to HE Diploma learner (or group of learners) may not have been able to complete all the assessments set. There may be a wide range of factors through which a learner’s ability to complete was impacted by significant personal difficulties beyond their control. Circumstances or the impact of existing circumstances on the learner is normally unforeseen when the learner starts the course.
Where a learner cannot complete all assessments, they may still be awarded unit(s) that make up the Diploma, through extenuation. This will require the provider to draw upon either further adaptations to assessments or alternate lines of evidence to determine whether the unit can be awarded.
This webinar will outline the process that needs to be followed for awards through extenuation.
