Privately Funded Client Information

If funding is not available to you it is possible to pay for your learning or just pay for your exams. 

Please note for all exams, especially at busy times of the year, summer and Christmas, results can take up to 4 weeks to arrive, however, most results come back quicker than this.

Options for private students are to study with tutor support or self-study without tutor support

Study Course WITHOUT Tutor Support.

If you believe that you just require a brush up on your skills, you can pay for a course that will provide online learning to suit your needs. You will be given access to the whole curriculum and can chose the subjects to study that you do not feel confident with.  There are mini assessments on every topic studied on the learning site, but you will not have tutor marked assignments.

Once you hit 100% of learning completed, or you feel you have increased your knowledge to a level to pass the exam, you would contact us and we would send out a mock exam for you to complete and return for marking with detailed tutor feedback.  If you score a pass in the mock, you can move straight to exam.  If you do not pass you would return to the learning and complete further modules in the areas identified.  Please note that further mocks papers would have to be paid for, along with all exams, unless you take the exam included option at the time of purchase.
