How long is this Literacy Level 3 Course?

We are often asked how quick someone can complete this course? This depends on a number of factors which includes your own commitment, time, assessment opportunities and the ability to study at a higher level. It will also help if you have evidence of prior learning and have access to resources that will enable you to actively participate in course activities. Learning partners joining the course with evidence of prior learning and credits will obviously be able to complete quicker than someone without. If you invest more time on the course such as 15 hours a week then you will most likely complete earlier compared to someone who commits only 2 hours for the same period.
