      On successful completion of this course students will receive a Business Management Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units you have completed as part of your course).

      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 2 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

      Further information about Ofqual’s Qualification & Credit Framework level descriptors can be found at http://www.ofqual.gov.uk/qualifications-and-assessments/qualification-frameworks/levels-of-qualifications/

      The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met.

This means that the course developers (Kendal Publishing) have undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The course itself has been designed by Kendal Publishing to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements.
