This course is an online course which involves online learning and assessments. Six weeks are given to complete the online learning but this is for flexibility (to allow for heavy work schedules / holidays) - it is not full time, and delegates may complete their online learning at a convenient time during this six week period.

A discounted price is available to delegates who work within Higher Education.
This course is available as a full online course or as a hybrid (mixture of e-learning and face to face training).
