Most of our distance learning courses are Level 2 qualifications and are equivalent to the level of a GCSE. They will take a significant amount of study time and you should consider the number of guided learning hours of the course you are interested in. As every student is different, we do not specify the number of weeks per course, but you should allow yourself a minimum of 5- 10 study hours per week to complete the work necessary to meet the course requirements.

The distance learning platform will provide all your learning materials, however, we do encourage further reading to help with your learning.

You will be required to submit a number of assessments (this differs per course) as a guide, there will be one or two per month. The assessments are completed via the online platform and can be done over a period of time (i.e. they are not delivered in a ‘timed test’ format).

If you do not pass an assessment, your tutor will advise you via written feedback and you will be able to resubmit the parts of the assessment which need more attention to gain a pass.

The funding of the courses requires students to show progression, but we understand that sometimes students may need more time due to work or personal circumstances. Therefore, submission extensions and course deferrals can be applied for and will be considered on an individual basis.

On completion of the course, you will receive a nationally recognised e-certificate from the awarding body.
