About CAVA

The Cambridge Access Validating Agency (CAVA) was founded in partnership between eight further education providers and three higher education institutions more than 20 years ago, united around their central passion for supporting social mobility and lifelong learning. That same passion drives us today to help adults achieve their aspirations through education.

Our original members have stayed with us on this journey, and our membership community has grown to over 30 further education providers and six higher education institutions across England. As an Access Validating Agency (AVA) licensed by the QAA, we design, validate, quality assure, and award the Access to Higher Education (HE) Diplomas. We also work in partnership with the NOCN Group to offer Pre-Access qualifications. We have thousands of adult students studying our courses at our members nationwide every year.
