Steph asked:

Hi what will this course qualify me to do.


This course is CPD Accredited which is training related to professional development and is recognised by schools and employers across the UK. This is not equivalent to a formal qualification. Instead this course will introduce you into the field teaching practical skills that you could then use to support your CV and job applications.

This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
