Welcome to Vocational Learning, a provider of life changing and career enhancing qualifications. We deliver a number of accredited qualifications including teacher training, assessor, internal verifier, childcare, health and social care.
Our ethos is to make a difference, breaking learning barriers and providing value for money services. The prices we state on our web site include registration, support, assessment, moderation, and certification. There are no hidden charges.
We have also combined a number of qualifications to enable you to receive discounts compared to when enrolling individually. There are also discounts for candidates enroling as a group at the same time.
We rely on providing an honest transparent service. There are no surprises regarding how we deliver our courses. On sign up both the candidate and Vocational Learning sign a service level agreement, which outlines our commitment and responsibilities. All candidates are required to actively participate in the planning and assessment process. After initial assessment and induction, your assessor will draft a holistic assessment plan that reflects your needs.
We treat all candidates as our learning and development partners. Our distance learning courses do not mean we just give you access and leave you to your fate. We always allocate a tutor on enrolment who will also be your assessor. All candidates will also have access to peer learning and can interact with other candidates. There are also regular teaching and support sessions delivered by web conference and telephone.
Our blended learning is delivered similar to distance learning. There is, however, a requirement for face-to-face contact within your workplace, ours or both. All candidates regardless of their enrolment type are welcome to participate in our monthly face-to-face sessions.
Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your needs. We are also happy to give you time-limited pre-enrolment access to explore our learning management system (Access) which hopefully will acquaint you with our course delivery, content, support and many other factors which hopefully will enable you to make an informed decision. We do not pressurise candidates to enrol or use marketing gimmicks and smart words.
Vocational Learning guarantees all candidates will be signed off and achieve their qualification as long as all course requirements are met.
