Delivery and Assessment

This qualification will be delivered a minimum of 12 months for full-time study. The Total Qualification Times (TQM) or Notional Learning Hours (NLH) will be covered as per the qualification requirements. This programme is flexible and can be delivered face-to-face or distance learning.

They are therefore not a precise measure but provide students with an indication of the amount of study and degree of commitment expected.
