Making edible gifts allows you the opportunity to create beautiful, unique gifts at a fraction of the price of anything you would find in a store or online. It gives you the chance to customize and make presents more personal. Plus, gifts that are made by hand are usually the nicest and most meaningful ones!

Most people think of Christmas when they think presents, but these homemade treats are perfect for birthdays, weddings, a housewarming gift, or simply something to cheer a friend up. From jams and biscuits to pasta and beverages, this course will take you step-by-step through how to make over 20 different gifts that are simple and fun to make and ones your friends and family will treasure!

Watching your friends and family open your homemade gift in awe of such a unique present will give you as much enjoyment as receiving one yourself.

This course takes the stress out of trying to figure out what present to buy your friend or family member.

I'm sure we've all been there, doing some last minute shopping needing to find a gift for an upcoming event not knowing what in the world to get.

  • you'll save money

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
