Is the programme award-bearing and/or accredited?
No, this is not an award-bearing course (and hence is not accredited).
However, it has been developed with assistance from key sector and
professional bodies to ensure it meets the needs of those working
in this field.
How long do the modules take?
You can choose how long to spend on each module. You could skim read
the text of each in about half an hour, or to engage more fully with
the text and the activities might take you approximately one and a
half to two hours. Some of the activities could be done in more depth,
eg by researching a particular aspect of your institution's provision,
or engaging with some of the reading and resources suggested at the
end of each module.
Do I have to complete any assessments as part of the course?
No, there are no tests or assessments included. However, there is
a Reflect tool to allow you to reflect on what you have learned and
how you might use it in your work.
Can I get a certificate to confirm I have completed the course?
You can create a self-certificated summary of your learning at the end of the programme, and you can also save and print out your entries in the Reflect tool as a PDF to provide
evidence of your learning.
