Jude asked:

Subject : Diploma in Environmental Management (Level 4) Dear Sir., Needed some details on the exam process will it be online. Exam process


Dear Jude, Our courses are assignment based, after each course unit you will complete an assignment which you will submit to your tutor for marking and you will move on to your next unit and assignment. This way you will complete the course. In the end, all your submitted work is assessed by the Awarding body and they issue the certificate. There is no formal exam to take at the end.

This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.

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.
