AssessmentsHow will I be assessed?

Course Assessments


The Advanced Property Development course is marked through a process of continuous assessment guided by your tutor following standard guidelines. This means that your certificate of achievement will be awarded according to your performance on assessments rather than by taking an exam.

After each lesson there will be a multiple choice assessment, which needs to be completed online. This method of continual assessment ensures that you have a good understanding of the subject. This will further assist you in career development, continued professional development, personal development, and provision of a basis for further study.  

Upon verification of the activities, exercises and assignments, a certificate of achievement will be awarded by ABC Awards, as confirmation that your written work has met all of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the programme.

To give an example, if you dedicate 8 hours a week to the course it would take you 3 months to complete but  if you could only spare 4 hours a week you will complete it in six months.

  • The occupants of a building require a comfortable internal environment, and there are several key factors that contribute to this. There are generally accepted ranges for these factors, and an understanding of what is acceptable to a variety of different end-users, undertaking a variety of tasks and activities is an essential requirement of good design.

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 it meets certain quality criteria.

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 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual for England, Wales and Northern Ireland, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by the college to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met. A regular 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.

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.
