How is the course assessed?
The NOCN Level 3 Diploma in Management (QCF) is a knowledge and competence based qualification and, as such, learners achieve a balance of practical skill and understanding. The qualification is achieved by a variety of methods. Knowledge is proven by an online assessment. Practical skills are assessed by coursework; observation; simulated activities; question and answer sessions; witness statements from colleagues; and evidence of prior learning, qualifications or achievements. This will be collected in a Portfolio of Evidence. Learners will be supported by a qualified tutor/assessor who will be a subject specialist.
How many hours of study are there?
If studying part time, learners will usually meet with one of our tutors/assessors for an hour every three weeks. If full time, they will meet for an hour every week. This is to teach using the latest technology and learning techniques, carry out assessments, ensure the course criteria is being met, give feedback and agree on how to proceed. The portfolio will include printed copies of the documents created by the learner every day at work.
How do I progress with this qualification?
Once gained learners can progress onto a relevant Level 4 course, or take a Degree in a relevant subject at numerous Universities. Or they could use it to continue or start working effectively in roles such as assistant manager, section manager or senior supervisor.
What are the entry requirements?
Learners will need to have GCSEs or a relevant Level 2 qualification to take this course. They will need to show competence in management and supervisory skills so will need to work in an office environment.
