At CAVA, we are driven by our values and passion for Access to Higher Education Diplomas. We are the only Access Validating Agency (AVA) that is solely focused on Access to HE Diplomas. We have a small friendly staff team dedicated to Access to HE: you can pick up the phone and know that whoever answers will be able to help.
We are a non-profit membership organisation: each of our providers joins us as a member and has an equal voice in the direction of the organisation. Together, we work to enable social mobility through lifelong learning.
By joining CAVA, you will become part of our community of members across England. All of our members have a voice on our CAVA Council and direct the strategy of the organisation.
If you are considering offering Access to HE Diplomas or looking to transfer from another Access Validating Agency, becoming a CAVA member will give you:
All of the above is included in our annual membership fee – which is reviewed and set by our members annually.
We would be delighted to discuss any aspect of Access to HE with you: whether it is transferring existing provision or realising your ideas by designing totally new provision, CAVA can help.
If you share our values and passion for social mobility through lifelong learning, we would love to hear from you. Please contact our Chief Executive, Flóra Raffai, to start the conversation. You can email her on firstname.lastname@example.org or call her on 01223 302148.
We look forward to welcoming you to the CAVA membership.
I would just like to personally say a BIG THANK YOU to you and your team for the amazing job you have done during these very strange times. I think you made excellent decisions promptly, arranged and implemented fantastic training on completion of new methods and were always available for support and over the phone contact. Once again, thank you.
I have been extremely impressed by the level and quality of communication received from CAVA throughout these unprecedented times. It has definitely been well received our end and helpful every step of the way.
