IS this a recognised qualification that I could use when applying for jobs?
Hi there, this is an employer recognised course, however, it doesn't give you credits or UCAS points to go onto further education. If you are looking to go to university then this isn't the right course for you. However, it is good for gaining insight and getting a good level of foundation knowledge and can give you an edge for job applications. I hope this helps you.This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
