The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end, the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner. 

    The course itself has been designed by UKDLP to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements.  ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met.  A regular review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

    "I am very pleased with my study materials"

    - Samantha Sholto-douglas , Hereford

    I am very pleased with my study materials , its all in detail and easy to research. My questions are asked so well that I know exactly what to write and look up. My tutor was very helpful when I send in my assignment the first time and now I am able to make it even better. I do find my course a little challenging but I'm pushing through it.

    I would recomend this study program to a friend. I chose this course because I am fascinated with the mind and how the brain works, mental health is very interesting and I wanted to understand what people go through in their battle of overcoming mental health problems. My sister suffers from mental health issues so I thought this would be a good way to help her and others in battling with the disease.
