Duration

 

Course duration will vary dependant on student commitment, effort and ability. Overall guided learning hours are approx 180. This should be used as a guideline only and completion times will vary hugely.

We would encourage students to seriously consider how they plan to complete their chosen course prior to enrolment. Students should think about how they are going to study, where they are going to study and how often. Be realistic!

Speak to family members and help them to understand what you are trying to achieve, explain you may require peace and space to study at certain times. The more you involve them the more likely you are to get them on your side.

Students are reminded that the time in which they complete is purely down to them as an individual. Completion can be as quickly or as slowly as you wish within the 12 month tuition period. If you require additional time an extension may be available. Extensions are arranged at an additional cost as and when needed.

The course is provided in an online format.

Online: Access our premium online cloud-based learning system where you are able to access all of your course lessons, assignments and tutor correspondence in one place. Access your course information on any device from anywhere in the world with an internet signal.

Assessment

 

All students on this course will be registered to a personal tutor for 12 months who is contactable via email. We also have a team of dedicated advisors to help and advise with any course related queries. The tutor’s role is to help and support students for the entire duration of their studies. Please remember our tutors are here to help. Never be embarrassed to ask for help.

This course is completed using a continual assessment, allowing your tutor to closely monitor your progress every step of the way. Therefore no examination is required. Students will be required to submit a series of assignments throughout their course direct to their assigned tutor. Tutor details will be contained within your study pack.

Students should understand that part of any study programme requires an element of research on their part. As technology moves forward at a rapid pace a visit to the local library is no longer the chosen method of accessing information. Students are also expected to use the internet for research purposes and can expect to be referred to various blogs and websites such as YouTube and Google amongst other specific websites relating to their chosen subject. Tutors will not give you the answers to complete your assignments.

Students can expect to receive feedback on submitted assignments within 7 days. However, we expect delays on this timescale during holiday periods e.g Summer holidays July/August, bank holidays and Xmas. We appreciate your patience during these periods.

 

FAQs

In order to help students with the terms and conditions of their enrolment, we have tried to keep things simple and easy to understand. No jargon or small print. Our full terms and conditions can be viewed here.

In our experience, the main and most important part of these terms for our students is the cancellation & returns policy. So let’s explain these clearly to avoid any misunderstanding.

Firstly, we would request that students check the course syllabus and content immediately upon receipt. This is vitally important. Please ensure that any qualification awarded at the end of your course meets your needs. If in doubt call us on 0121 288 0181 to check before you enrol.

Please email accounts@ukopencollege.co.uk stating your name, address, invoice number requesting to cancel. We will then respond to you with further instruction. If you have received a hard copy of your course you will be required to return this at your own cost via courier/recorded delivery before a full refund will be issued. If you have paid a deposit and signed a student agreement, you will be charged a £30 cancellation fee. This will be deducted from any deposit paid in addition to any postage charges incurred by us.

All returns must remain unused and in a resalable condition. This complies with distance selling regulations. All students are welcome to return their course to us for any reason as long as we have been notified within the 14 days as above. Unfortunately, if notification to cancel is received outside of this period your request for a refund will be declined. This does not affect your statutory rights

Online chat with customer services Darren. I was enquiring about the Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools Level 3 Award (RQF) teaching assistant course. Darren's patience with me extended to well over thirty minutes as I made query after query and he went back and forth, always patiently and politely to seek solutions to my enquiry, which were found. I cannot praise Darren enough for his perseverance, politeness and service with UK Open College. Let this be a lesson to all those other customer service agents out there (be it training colleges or otherwise) to how service should be provided. Keep it up Darren. I look forward to starting this course!

I had a great overall experience with UK Open College. However, it took a while for me to receive my certificates to the point that I had to chase them up. This was sorted eventually and now I have them. But overall, if you want to study from home, I would recommend this organisation! I am one step closer on my childcare journey.

I have just finished completing the Level 3 Certification in Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools (RQF). During the course, my tutor changed (First I had Sam and then Kerry); however, that did not affect the level of support I received. Both the tutors I had were great at supporting me and gave valuable feedback to help me improve my skills. In particular, my second tutor, Kerry, had great attention to detail and gave me very detailed and constructive feedback which made me understand the subject in depth. All my assignments were turned around very promptly, and she was always very helpful in case of any clarifications. I would like to thank Kerry for her support, guidance, help and encouragement in completing the course. I am very grateful for all the knowledge I have obtained. Also, I would like to thank Mr.Bill for all the help and support provided whenever I called the Student Support Helpline. I would highly recommend UKOpenCollege to anyone.

My online Tutor was extremely helpful and was very detailed when marking my assessments and gave back excellent feedback. I managed to complete my course within just under 5 months and I'm so delighted. the course material provided was very detailed and something that i can keep in the longterm. will definitely recommend UK Open college to everyone and will use them in the future.

I really enjoyed learning with the UK Open College, if I need to do another course in the future I will definitely be returning. It made life so much easier for me as I could do it all on my computer, I didn’t have to worry about driving down to the local college or doing an adults course in the evening. Tutors were great and really helpful. Great value for money

I decided to do something with my time upon being made redundant, I am not one for sitting around doing nothing. The course booklet was excellent, there was enough information in it to put you on the right path for each question. I was able to carry out the work at my own pace which was superb for me as I wasn't out of work for long. One major positive for me were the tutors, I had two in my year long course that were both brilliant. The only negative about the whole thing was writing each question to my fullest but then being told there were word counts for each section which led to me spending a long time cutting large chunks of text out. (this could have been me not realising.) All in all though I would recommend UK open college to people looking to broaden their horizons and who want to try something new.

From the very first phone call I was dealt with very professionally, customer service was very friendly. My study books arrived promptly and my contacts with the tutors were responded to within timescales. Once or twice I had difficulty understanding what was required but tutor took the time to explain it to me. Unfortunately my tutor changed towards the end of my course which, although the replacement was friendly too, was a bit of a hiccup in the journey. It would have been improved by having assignment feedback documents that we could download rather than having to type them up from scratch. Also if I knew in advance that evidence in the earlier tasks could be used in the later ones it would have made the work easier and faster - maybe some co-relation in the index folder? Overall I would recommend for value and quality - Thank you UK open college
