Max Carrington (Access to Higher Education)

Former Access to Higher Education student Max Carrington, who moved on to the University of Kent to study Psychology, has just completed his final examinations, and has expressed his thanks to Kidderminster College for getting him into university.

During his time at Kidderminster College, Max was awarded the Access to Higher Education Award 2014 in recognition of the way studying can transform lives. Max went from being homeless before studying at Kidderminster College, then progressing to University to fulfil his ambition of becoming a clinical psychologist.

Max said: “During my time at Kent, I was elected as school representative during stage 2 and 3. I’ve just won the award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Academic Communities’ and have been nominated for the ‘Student Rep of the Year’ and ‘Lifetime & Honorary Membership’ awards. I am currently applying for positions to be an asssistant​ psychologist.”

When Max won the Access to Higher Education Award in 2014, he said: “I chose the Access to Higher Education course at Kidderminster College as a means of giving me the highest possible chance of excelling in life after numerous setbacks. The course would not only allow me to progress, but also progress with the skills to excel at university.”

“The Access course has aided me in appreciating what I almost let go of many a time, a chance of a better life. I now have stability and a part-time paid position as a youth worker thanks to the course.  Overall, the Access course also allowed me to realise my potential and to access the chance of another life.” Max is a great example of how the Access to Higher Education course can set you on the right path to university and into a successful career.

The course aims to prepare students for study in a broad range of higher education subjects, develop study skills and benefit from support and assistance in applying to university. Students typically progress into courses in nursing, psychology, occupational therapy, social work or other health related studies.
