Guided Learning Hours:

These hours include all real-time communication time with a learner, as well as any instruction or supervision provided by a lecturer, boss, mentor, teacher, or other suitable education or training provider.

Since you only need to complete the mandatory units, the GLH for this certification is 360.

Total Qualification Time:

This is a rough estimation of how long it would take a learner to reach and show the degree of achievement required for the certification to be awarded, i.e. to complete all learning objectives.

Qualification in its entirety Time is made up of GLH and an estimation of how many hours a learner is likely to spend on planning, research, or any other type of learning, including evaluation, that is guided by but not supervised by an instructor, supervisor, or tutor. TQT determines the credit value of qualification if one is granted since one credit equals 10 hours of learning.

This qualification takes a total of 120 hours to complete. The Total Credit value is 600.

Method of Assessment:

We encourage lecturers to use a range of assessment vehicles that will engage learners and give them an opportunity to both demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of a topic and to evaluate how they might apply that knowledge in a given context. This should be part of the assessment strategy.

This might include assessment through:

  • a research activity resulting in the compilation of a report
  • an academic paper or article for publication
  • the compilation of a case study
  • a critical review and evaluation of a chosen company’s policies, procedures and systems
  • a set project completed for an employer (also known as an ‘employer engagement’ activity)
  • the production of a portfolio of evidence relating to a particular unit.
