Elevation Training operates an open admissions policy and welcomes applications from all learners who meet the stated minimum entry requirements for the programme, irrespective of social, cultural and/or educational backgrounds. We communicate in a professional and courteous manner to all those who express an interest in undertaking a programme with us.

All learners entering our programmes are expected to be proficient at reading, researching, understanding, drafting and preparing information, across a broad range of topics. Learners applying to our programmes should have a minimum of a level 4 certificate, or leaving certificate, and/or equivalent qualification. Decisions on admission to a programme are transparent and consistent, and we treat all applicants in a fair and equitable manner.

Applicants who do not meet entry criteria based on previous certified learning achievement may be entitled to be considered based on professional experience, informal or non-formal learning (See Access, Transfer & Progression Policy, ETP 3.03).

Learners, for whom English is not their first language, may be required to provide evidence of their level of English competency. Learners will not be admitted if it is deemed that their level of English proficiency would disadvantage them.
