Focus Awards (FQP) - Level 4 Teaching Assistant Award
This course has been accredited through the Focus Awards “Focus on Quality Provision” (FQP) Scheme. The course content and depth of study required have been benchmarked against Level 3 on the Qualification Credit Framework (QCF).
Focus Awards is Regulated as an Awarding Organisation by Ofqual, the qualification regulators for England, Wales & Northern Ireland. FQP programmes are designed to give formal recognition to courses in a wide range of subjects that fall outside the QCF. They are not qualifications; on successful graduation from the course you will receive a Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement and a Diploma from My Distance Learning College.
FQP courses are ideal for professionals required to demonstrate commitment to CPD (Continuous Professional Development), and for those wanting to gain specialist knowledge of a particular subject.
Receipt of Certification: Certification is awarded by Focus Awards and can take up to 12 weeks to be received after completion of your studies. All certification will be delivered to students direct at their home address. UK Open College have no control over delivery of certification awarded by the external awarding bodies. Any outstanding fees are payable before certification is issued.
Course duration will vary dependant on student commitment, effort and ability. Overall guided learning hours are approx 100. This should be used as a guideline only and completion times will vary hugely.We would encourage students to serioulsy 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 acheive, explain you may require peace and space to study at certain times. The more you involve them the more likey 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.
Students are able to complete their course purely online though our ilearn it easy student portal in PDF Format or choose to receive a hard copy of the course lessons via the post. If you choose to receive a hard copy please note you will also be required to upload any completed assignments via the student portal. We do not accept course assignments via post.
Students can expect to receive access to the student portal via email within 3 working days of enrolment being received. Please allow 5 working days for receipt of hard copy materials if selected.
If you choose to enrol please select your preferred method at checkout.
All students on this course will be registered to a personal tutor for 12 months who is contactable via email through our student portal. We also have a team of dedicated advisors to help and advise with any course related queries. The tutors 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 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 by uploading completed assignments to our student portal. You are able to view our ilearn it easy portal here
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 You Tube and Google amongst other specific websites relating to their chosen subject. Tutors will not give you the answers to complete your assignments.
All correspondence with your tutor can be viewed via the portal along with all feedback and comments on submitted assignments. Access this from anywhere in the world from any device connected to the internet. True flexibility
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.
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 lets 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.
If for any reason you wish to cancel and return your course to us for a refund you are welcome to do so as long as you notify us within 7 days of receipt at the delivery address. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
All returns must remain unused and in resaleable condition. This complies with distance selling regulations 2000. All students are welcome to return their course to us for any reason as long as we have been notified within the 7 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
Please call our accounts team direct on 01827 283735 if you have any questions regarding our cancellation and returns policy. It will only cost you a phone call
