DO I RECEIVE PERSONAL TUITION?
No, our courses are designed to be worked through on your own.
IS THE HOW TO OPEN A CHILDREN'S HOME GUIDE UP TO DATE WITH CURRENT REGULATIONS?
Yes. Our guide was originally published in 2017 and is updated regularly in line with Ofsted guidance, regulatory changes and our current experience of the residential sector.
WILL I BE ABLE TO ACCESS SUPPORT AFTER I PURCHASE?
Yes. You will receive our contact details and be able to email us with any questions you have as you work through the material.
YOUR COURSES SEEM VERY GOOD VALUE, WHY IS THIS?
We do not provide tutor support but simply provide you with the material to allow you to gain the knowledge you require at a discounted rate.
ARE THERE ANY ENTRY REQUIREMENTS?
In essence, there are none. Many people use our courses as a second chance opportunity to study and gain a qualification. Each prospective student will be guided by our experience advisors as to the best courses to meet their individual needs.
HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL COURSE LAST?
You should expect to complete a course within 6 months and this would involve around 8 hours of study per week. Although we do not advocate that students try to accelerate through a module as we believe education and learning have to be enjoyed and digested, it would be possible to do it more quickly if you had less home/work commitments and could devote more study time to the course. Each course will state the amount of hours that it is expected to complete.
ARE THERE ANY EXAMINATIONS?
No – each course, either stands alone and contains self test and assignment work.
I AM NEW TO ONLINE/DISTANCE LEARNING, WILL I BENEFIT FROM IT?
There are many reasons why students elect to follow a distance learning course – issues of accessibility, time off work, change of career, costs of child care etc. Each student will have his/her reason for choosing this medium for education. Regardless of why you chose us, we will endeavour to ensure that you enjoy your educational journey with us and will always be available to you to discuss issues that are hindering your capacity to succeed on your studies. We strongly advise you to find a mentor in your place of work who can be a ‘buddy’ and motivator to you as some students do miss the social context of studying when they are on their own.
DO I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE START OF A TERM TO ENROL?
No. This is one of the major benefits of how we run our courses as you can start your own course on any day of the year.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY COURSE MATERIALS?
All our course materials are sent as PDF files so that we can maintain our fee costs at the lowest price possible.
WHAT QUALIFICATION WILL I RECEIVE?
For individual courses you would receive a Certificate of Attendance for your CPD records and proof of your skills for CV purposes.
CAN I STUDY FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD?
Our courses are available to any one, anywhere in the world from the comfort of your own home. The course content is relevant to any country, culture or economy.
WHAT SETS KNOWLEDGE IS POWER APART FROM OTHER INSTITUTIONS?
A unique feature of our courses is that we combine knowledge of the subject matter with practical tasks (set tasks, found at the end of each lesson). So you get to do practical components in each lesson. The benefits of this approach are immense: - your skills and knowledge are developed to a much higher level not normally found at other distance learning institutions.
