Open Awards Access to HE Staff Changes

With the beginning of the new academic year we are ringing in the changes at Open Awards. Sadly Rob and Sheena who have ably led our Diploma for the past couple of years are moving onto pastures new. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their hard work and stewardship and wish them well for the future.


In their place we are pleased to announce that Katherine Wales has been appointed as our new Access to HE Manager. Katherine will be well known to many of you having been the Customer Service Officer for Access for a number of years. She will be assisted in her role by our new Access to HE Officer Ann Marie Williams who joins the Access to HE from our Registration and Award team.
