The Access programme is not one that the University actively supports at the moment.
The University is an accredited centre for AAT and runs a yearly in-house program at level 2 and level 3 for staff. If you are unsure which level is the most appropriate for you then complete the AAT's skills-check.
Success at each AAT level is recognised as a vocational qualification and is based upon passing formal computer -based assessments and synoptic assessments.
