We are an approved training provider to deliver more than 60 distance learning qualifications.

All our qualifications are accredited by the Highfield awarding body All these qualifications are quick and simple to enrol on and some attract government based funding to claim the cost of the qualification back. The qualifications are delivered as distance learning options, under the guidance of a fully qualifed assessor, delivered at a pace to suit the learner's work commitments and lifestyle, using an e-portfolio system to submit learner evidence.

Fully Funded Qualifications - How do they work?

We deliver 9 qualifications that attract Government Funding from the Workforce Development Fund managed by the Skills for Care programme This funding pathway supports the provision of high quality care and the continuing professional development (CPD) of staff across the adult social care sector by providing a contribution towards the costs of vocational learning. The fund allows you to claim back money towards the costs of learners who have completed any of our Fully Funded Qualifications. Claims are submitted by the respective care setting with the assistance of Step Up Training and Care via a simple to use portal. This is done once a learner has completed their qualification. It takes approximately 10 days for claims to be settled once submitted.

Awards, Certificate and Diplomas - What is the difference?

Qualifications are organised by difficulty and size as a means of showing their standard. In other words, how hard they are and how long they take to complete. The harder the qualification, the more value it has and the more clout it can bring to your CV and job prospects. The same is true of course length, with longer courses recognised as a higher standard.

Awards are the 'shortest' or 'smallest' qualifications offered. An Award is any qualification that requires up to 130 hours to complete and is equal to up to 13 credits

Certificate qualifications are the next step up from Awards. They offer comprehensive course content to help you master a particular area of study, generally providing all the knowledge you need to take your career to the next level or pursue further education. They range in learning hours from 130 hours up to 370 hours - 16 credits to 37 credits.

Diplomas are considered the longest and most comprehensive qualifications available. They generally require over 370 hours of training to complete, equating to a minimum of 37 credits. Diplomas offer wide-ranging coverage of the chosen subject matter, providing detailed training designed to develop your skills to the optimal level. In-depth and challenging, Diplomas present a significant milestone for all learners but do provide advanced skills and knowledge to help accelerate and drive your career forward.
