QualificationsWhat qualifications will I receive?

Course Qualifications 


Qualification : Property Development Level 3 Award 

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards' Quality Licence Scheme. This means that UK Learning & Publishing has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed to meet specific learners' and/or employers' requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards' endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

Home Study ExplainedHow does home study work and is it right for me?

Distance Learning Explained


Distance Learning is a term used to describe a method of learning where you; the learner, are not physically required to be ‘onsite’ to be guided through learning materials. Learners and tutors will use methods such as email and telephone to communicate, with you deciding how, when and where you learn.
 
UK Learning College gives you the flexibility to complete our programmes as quickly or as slowly as is convenient for you. To make this possible, our learning programmes have been written and prepared in such a way that it enables you to take control over these decisions.  We also have a varied range of e-learning courses available to complement our full portfolio of distance learning courses.
 
Distance Learning allows you to develop the personal confidence and independence needed for success. Once you have become familiar with your distance learning course materials and you feel you know your way around the programme, then it is time to put together your own personal study plan to help you decide how best to study. We would advise that you write down your plan to assist you in following your timetable.
 
Although our distance learning course guides are primarily aimed at the first time user, you may already have some experience of distance learning. Whatever your experience, it is important to understand that to be a successful distance learner you need to become familiar and comfortable with the learning materials.
