Thank you from AccessHE
After the last few months of busy activity with several learning curves along the way, we'd like to take the chance to thank you all for coming along to our Virtual Coffee Mornings; tweeting in our AccessHE hours; attending the London Careers Festival, our Degree Apprenticeships student event, CPD conference,  and recent Looked After Children event. Your support has been instrumental in addressing the challenges learners face in the context of Covid-19 and we hope those students have gained new perspectives on higher education from our events. Most of all, we hope you  have a restful break after a very challenging period for schools.

We will be busy over the summer planning new initiatives for your students, and can't wait to tell you about them in the new academic year. In the meantime, we wanted to share a few resources to help students over the summer break. 

Best wishes, 

Beth, Geraldine, Michelle, and Tayler
