100% progression to university for our learners
Our results are outstanding, with 100% achieving and 100% having offers to progress to their first choice course at university. Previously mock interviews were offered from a member of the teaching team from the University of Chichester. As a result learners were fully prepared for the interviews at university and have been accepted on highly competitive courses.
Great courses with plenty of support
Content and structure of our courses provides students with a clear understanding of topics. Our courses has had support from the three local universities as well as a member of the outreach team from the University of Cambridge who visited the college. This is as well as continued support from the University of Brighton with students given full Access to the library and study areas
Outstanding teaching in all areas
We are fortunate to have the same team this year as well as 2 experienced Access tutors joining the recently validated Access to Health course. Excellent support from teacher assistants helps to support learners with the quality of their writing, numeracy and IT. Very high level of support for a student with Dyslexia
I am very pleased to have achieved great results, I am now studying at University. I have a lot to thank both the College and my teacher for helping me. I am looking forward to do many different modules in my Degree especially those focusing on mental health. Thank you so much, you have been really supportive, accessible and you offer a wealth of knowledge and experience.
I cannot emphasize enough the similarities between what we learnt at PACA and what I’m currently doing at University. As a mature student, it has been a great help knowing that I learnt skills and developed learning techniques at PACA that have equipped me to tackle my undergraduate course successfully.
The support and help provided by PACA was absolutely brilliant and I can’t speak highly enough of them. In comparison to some students starting at Chichester, I was taught things which some other students hadn’t even heard of.
If you’re looking for a superb learning environment, with incredible support and help at every step of the way, then PACA is the perfect adult learning environment for you.
The courses I completed at PACA were absolutely instrumental in not only getting myself into Chichester University, but actually equipped me with the skills and knowledge that has allowed me to cope with the transition successfully.
