The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Open Study College has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria.

The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 2 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner. 

The course itself has been designed by Open Study College to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met.

So far I have enjoyed the creative crafts course

So far I have enjoyed the creative crafts course, learning new skills is why I wanted to take this specific subject, and so far it hasn't disappointed. I thought rightly or wrongly that there would be more study materials, but apart from that my experience of open study college has been a positive one, and yes I would definitely recommend to a friend.

I'm just about to write my first assignment, I also chose to do an open study college course as I haven't been in education for a few years now, and so wanted to start with a course that I thought I'd enjoy as I'm a fairly creative crafty person, and so far I've really enjoyed learning the new skills the course offers.
