    The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme & is offered in partnership with Open Study College (OSC). This means that OSC 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 difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

    The course itself has been designed by Open Study College to meet specific learners’ and /or employers requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. Abc Awards & Cert 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.
