The training you will be getting

The qualification received after successful completion of the course is Content Creator Level 3. There may also be Functional Skills Level 2 for maths if required.

Our training delivery is based on a remote, blended model of one-to-one sessions every 4 weeks, group sessions, webinars, online courses, video, and additional support as required. This means that our learners have the guidance they need as well as the flexibility to learn around the requirements of their jobs. We find that this approach reduces disruption for the learners and their line managers giving everyone the best chance of benefitting from the training and completing the course.

Delivery of the standard is remote and is based around modules consisting of introduction, training, personal study, completion, and observation.
