Political commentator Kenny Imafidon praises his BPP Pathway to Higher Education programme
Political commentator Kenny Imafidon has hailed a BPP Pathway to Higher Education programme as giving people the “skills and confidence to excel at university”.
Imafidon, who as a teenager was charged with murder and acquitted before becoming an advisor on helping people escape gangs, successfully completed BPP University’s Pathway to HE Certificate in Legal Studies and is now studying his law degree with BPP University.
The Pathway course caters for people wanting to study degrees in law, business, accounting or psychology and helps students to see if university is the right fit for them. Even those without traditional qualifications, such as A Levels, who are over the age of 18 and keen to learn can study BPP University’s tailored term-long course to give them the skills and knowledge needed to be able to start their degrees. Students who pass the Pathway programme are then guaranteed a place onto the relevant BPP University degree course.
Imafidon, an award-winning author of The Kenny Reports said: “The BPP Pathway scheme is a very intensive course and the amount of work you have to do should not be underestimated. The scheme lasts only 12 weeks but it will provide you with the prerequisite knowledge, skills and confidence to prepare you to excel at university, as well as give insight into your preferred course of study at university level.”
Another notable student who progressed onto a BPP law degree following success through the Pathway programme was Bethany England – an England Under 23s international footballer and Doncaster Rovers Belles midfielder.
Professor Amanda Blackmore, BPP University’s Deputy Vice Chancellor and Dean of its School of Foundation & English Language Studies, said: “The Pathway programme is fantastic for a range of students including those who want to find out what it is like to study at University without committing themselves to a full degree and those who may have been out of education for a while who want to build their confidence, knowledge and skills in preparation for a university degree.
Courses start three times a year: September, January and May at BPP’s School of Foundation and English Language Studies based in London’s Shepherd’s Bush. Students studying full-time must complete 16 hours of classes per week. There are also part-time opportunities available. The course fee is £500 which will be discounted from their university fees if they pass the Pathway programme.
