Online Learning

This programme is offered on a rolling basis through self-study and remote Tutor support. This mode of study requires self-discipline and motivation to ensure the monthly deadlines are adhered to. We aim to support you to complete this programme in 6-8 months on average (though it may be longer if the target dates are not met).

You will be given access to the VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) which contains all the resources required to study each topic and then complete the Assessment Tasks.

There is a mixture of formative and summative assessment to allow you to check your progress at the end of each section. You will be provided with Tutor contact details and they are on hand throughout your programme to ensure all your queries and uncertainties are answered promptly.
