Description

Are you interested in pursuing a career in criminal law? Studying criminal law is relevant to a diverse range of professions, not just the criminal justice system, but also for the police, government, social work and many more. You will learn about criminal law, the criminal court system and police powers. There will also be an in-depth look at the different criminal offences.

The course is conveniently designed for home study, so you can study whenever and from wherever you would like. The course will take approximately 80-100 hours to complete and will be assessed through a series of written assignments. There is no time limit to complete the requirements, so you can work at your own pace. You'll also have access to friendly, experienced tutors who will guide you every step of the way.

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a level 3 NCFE Award certificate of achievement. That means that it is independently accredited at a level of learning equivalent to level 3 on The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. NCFE is recognised as an Awarding Organisation by the qualification regulators for England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
