Do I have to meet with my tutor or support advisor?

No. The communication you have with your tutor will either be via email or telephone. Any communication you have with our support team will also be via email or telephone.

Does the qualification expire?

No. Once you complete a course you will gain a nationally recognised Level 3 qualification which lasts forever and will be beneficial to you throughout your entire working career.

Is there a time limit or any deadlines?

Depending on your fee status there will be deadlines for you to meet within your course. We will suggest targets for you to aim towards to encourage you with your study. You will be reminded of this throughout your course via email and should try and meet these targets when submitting your assessments. Your tutor will provide guidance and support throughout your course through email and telephone communication.

Do I need any computer skills?

You only need very basic skills to complete a course. If you do any shopping online or use any social media websites then you will find our online learning platform, EQUAL, very easy to use. Even if you do not regularly use a computer, as long as you know how to turn it on and access the Internet, then the helpful guides and videos on EQUAL will provide you with all the help you need to get started online.

Do I need a computer to take the course?

Yes, you will need a computer to access your emails and to use the Internet when carrying out research. Even if you choose to complete a paper-based course, you will still need a computer to complete your assessments online and submit them. If you choose to complete an online course, you will be using a computer for every aspect of your study.

Do I need to buy anything else to go with the course?

No. As long as you have a working computer, a pen and some paper, you will have no problems completing a course with us. If you complete an online course, all of the resources you need will be accessible online, and if you complete a paper-based course with online assessments, we will send you everything you need in the post and via email.

What is in the course content?

Each course covers a particular area of study through a detailed exploration of the subject matter. This includes subject specific case studies, thought provoking activities, further research tasks, key facts, summary pages and "Stop and Think" sections where learners are encouraged to consider how the learning content may mirror reality. A wide range of exciting games and interesting videos will also be included in the course content.

Within the courses, there are often prompts for further personal exploration and sometimes you will carry out some research yourself, which will help you answer the assessment questions fully.

Is the course paper-based or online?

This course is entirely online, so you can use EQUAL to complete your course and answer the assessment questions as you go along. Whichever way you to choose to learn, you can study when you like, where you like!

When you are browsing through our courses, look out for the icons which tell you how you can complete each course.

How am I assessed?

The assessment questions for this course will be file uploads from the learner that are then marked by your assessor/tutor. An assignment brief for each unit will be provided to you to breakdown exactly what is expected. You will then complete the assignment in line with the word count provided and then submit to EQUAL. This will then be assessed with the learning outcomes and feedback will be provided to you.

How do I submit my assessments?

You submit your assessments online via our learning platform EQUAL, for your tutor to mark. Each course is broken down into manageable units and sections, and assessment questions are strategically placed at the end of each section to test you on the content while it is fresh in your mind. You then answer each question and upload the answers which allows your tutor to assess the standard and style of your work for each section and provide feedback.

Once you have obtained your feedback, you will either move on to the next unit if you passed, or review the previous unit you have submitted until you pass.

Is there a word count?

Each word count is different. All assignments have a recommended word count. Generally the word count should be regarded as a guide to the minimum length of assignment expected to achieve a pass mark, not the maximum word count.

How long will it take me to complete a course?

Everyone is different and all learners will progress at different speeds. There are no strict deadlines for you to meet when you are studying with us, although we will suggest targets for you to try and meet to keep you on track with your learning.

On average, a learner completes a course with us in around 12 to 20 weeks. We will provide flexible guidelines to encourage you to progress with your learning at a steady pace, but if these are unsuitable for you, you can learn in your own time when you are ready.

What will I gain from completing a course?

After completing a course with us, you will gain a nationally recognised qualification which can not only increase your general knowledge, but also increase your chance of securing a job, allow you to develop your career and improve your chance of progressing in the workplace to reach your goals. Alongside this, the course materials will help you to develop the necessary knowledge and confidence surrounding your chosen subject area. The activities and assessments are also designed to help you develop relevant research and academic writing skills.

What happens if I fail an assessment?

You try again! You will receive an email from us when your feedback is available online, so that you can take a look and find out whether you have passed or not.

There is no such thing as failing an assessment, because your work is not graded; assessments are simply identified as Pass or Referred. If your answers are referred, your tutor will simply point out the answers which need a little bit more attention in order for you to rework your answer, resubmit and pass!

When you pass a unit you move onto the next one, and when you pass your final unit you simply wait for your certificate to arrive!

Are there any exams?

No. None of our courses involve any examinations and learners are assessed entirely through their answers to the assessment questions which they complete throughout the course.

Where do I complete the course and do I have to go to a local college?

You do not have to attend a local college at any point and you can complete the course anywhere you like! Our learning resources are designed to allow you to study where you like, when you like. Similarly, by studying through our online system, EQUAL, you can choose where and when you do your work as long as you have access to the Internet.

How long will my certificate take to arrive?

Your certificate will take between six and eight weeks to arrive. Once you complete the course and submit your final piece of work, your assessments will be marked and your work will go through an external moderation process. Once this process is complete, we send your certificate to you as soon as possible.

Will the course help me get a job?

Successfully completing a course with us can definitely improve your career prospects as you will have gained a nationally recognised qualification. ILM is a highly respected organisation with strict standards and requirements which each course is tailored to.

Is the course accredited? If so, who by?

Yes, we offer a wide range of short certificate and award qualifications, which are all approved and accredited by ILM (awarded by City and Guilds), a National Awarding Organisation.

Successful students who complete a course will be awarded with a certificate of achievement by ILM (awarded by City and Guilds) at the end of their course and will have gained a nationally recognised qualification which can boost their career prospects in the future.

How much is the course and when do I pay?

You can either pay for the course in full in one payment which is required before you begin your study, or start a course for just £250 as part of our three instalment plan. This means you pay £250 to begin your course, and then pay a second instalment of £250 when you are half way through the course – which will be around six to eight weeks later - and a final instalment is required when you submit your final piece of work.

Can anyone complete the course?
