harriet asked:

can this be offered in a 24 month plan?also can we not receive a certificate until all payments have been made?can we fast track this in a few months

Answer:

Harriet, payment over 24 months is possible. An Assessor has to be paid to assess assignments. No Payment, No Assessments, No Certificate! You can fast track & complete quickly, if assignments are up to the Level 5 standard & without cheating. The full qualification requires 800 hours to complete & learners who want to fast-track are asking us to complete 12-18 months work in a few months. Fast track means intensive work & overtime for us & we require the remaining fee to paid in full upfront.

Kay asked:

Im confused what is the total of the full course. Including all fees

Answer:

The total fees payable for this qualification are £1206. It is clearly stated on the advert in 3 places; Overview, Description, and also in the section titled "Who is this course for?" Out of the £1206, the learner pays £18 through this Reed website to enrol, and the remaining £1188 is paid by the learner in 12 monthly instalments of £99/month. If the learner want to pay the remaining £1188 in one payment, that is acceptable too. But most people are on a tight budget and prefer to pay monthly.

Maz asked:

Does this course shiw how to do tendering too?

Answer:

As stated in the advert, this course teaches managers to lead and manage a domiciliary care setting. This is not a writing course for writing tenders. Thanks.

Daniel asked:

Hi, can you confirm the monthly payment plan for this course, as I have just proceeded to the checkout to pay, it clearly stated £18. Many Thanks

Answer:

As stated in the advert the initial payment of £18 does not include cost of assessments. The additional payments for assessments are £96 per month for 12 months, as clearly stated in the same advert, which lists what the additional payments are for. Many thanks. 12 Oct 2019

Jabeen asked:

How long does it take to complete the course?

Answer:

Between 12 and 24 months. It depends on the learner/student. Some people study diligently, do their assignments & assessments quickly & complete in as little as 9 months. And some people leave it unattended, maybe they expect the assignments to do themselves & it takes them longer to finish the qualification. So, in summary, how long it takes to complete the course depends on the diligence and consistency of the student.

Miriam asked:

Do you offer further payment considerations? ie; could payments be broken down further over the 18months?

Answer:

Hi Miriam. It is possible, on a case-by-case basis depending on circumstances. When do you want to start the course? Updated answer - we have broken down the payments to accommodate the needs of prospective learners as yourself. We hope this meets your requirements. Thanks

Kitty asked:

can i start the course before getting a managerial job,it seems nobody employs someone who does not have experience and qualifications.

Answer:

Yes you can! Even if you are working as a senior care assistant or senior support worker, you can enrol now & start studying. The qualification has 25 units, comprising knowledge units, skills units, & combined knowledge & skills units, it takes you 18 to 25 months to complete everything. You start with the knowledge units & complete your assignments. Then move on to the knowledge parts of the combined units, & do the skills units last. By that time you would have moved on to a management job.

Seb asked:

Hi i am a coordinator for vulnerable families and don't work in this field am i still able to take this course on or would i still need to get a job

Answer:

You need to be working as a manager in an adult care setting, either domiciliary care, residential care home, nursing care home, or health care setting, in England. If you are not working in any of these jobs then you won't be able to complete the competence parts of the qualification, as the assessment of skills and competence is done at work in a real job. If you really want to study for this qualification then you should get a job as a manager or deputy manager in a care setting in England.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

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 ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
