This is a distance learning course. This means learners do not have to attend college for lessons or sessions with a tutor. You are given a personal log in to e-assessor, where you will submit your work for each unit. Once work is submitted this is automatically sent to your assessor for marking.
Additional Costs and Information

The course is free to enroll on, however, if a learner wishes to be withdrawn from the course at any point, or fails to submit their work in within the allotted time given to them by their assessor, they will be charged a £150 fee. This is explained to learners at their induction.
We now require all learners to submit unit 1 within the first month of their enrolment onto the course, otherwise they risk being withdrawn from the course and charged the £150 fee.
The allotted time for each learner to complete this course is 4 months.
