It's a good course – not too complicated but detailed enough to be useful. I can do it on my laptop at home – it makes it easier to learn – it's not like being in a classroom.
Ann, Glenrothes
I was really worried about Mark because he didn't seem to be getting enough support from school, even though I was pushing them. But since I've started on the course, I'm more sure of my ground so I can talk to his class teacher better.
Maria, Cheam
As my two children are now in school I want to go back to work, and I'm interested in dyslexia because my son seems to be reluctant to read. The course is helping me personally and also will give me a qualification that will help me get a job in a school.
Jane, Streatham

This course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards' Quality Licence Scheme.

This means that The Blackford Centre has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers meet certain quality criteria.

The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification, but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector.

To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 Diploma against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by The Blackford Centre to meet specific learners' or employers' requirements, which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications.

ABC Awards' endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

ABC Awards is a leading national Awarding Organisation, regulated by Ofqual and the Welsh Government. It has a long-established reputation for developing and awarding high quality vocational qualifications across a wide range of industries. As a registered charity, ABC Awards combines 180 years of examination and assessment expertise and implements a responsive, flexible and innovative approach to the needs of learners.
