What opportunities will this course give me?

It is estimated that 1 in 10 individuals in the UK will have some form of dyslexia; and this is just one of many specific learning difficulties. For those working in a health, education or social care setting, it is crucial to understand these widespread difficulties and their impact on an individual. Our fully funded level 2 certificate in Understanding Specific Learning Difficulties will help you acquire the skills, knowledge and awareness that an employer would look for in such a role. The course is delivered through distance learning, eliminating barriers to entry and giving all students the opportunity to complete the course at their own pace and within their own circumstances. Successful completion of the programme will substantially further both your personal and professional development, as well as forming a notable mark on your CV.

Why is this course for me?

VRQs are recognised nationally as professional qualifications; they are built to improve a learners understanding, knowledge and skills within a specific area of employment. We believe these are valuable, influential certifications; which is why we do all we can do make them as accessible as we can. We therefore can offer full funding for: ● Students aged 19 + who are unemployed ● Students aged 23 + who are employed ● Students aged 19 - 23 who hold a level 2 qualification or higher By the end of the course, you will have a deep understanding of: ● The variety of specific learning difficulties and their different contexts ● Their effects ● How they are diagnosed ● How the individual can be supported The course is delivered through distance learning, meaning that students are able to work whenever and wherever they want. You will never be required to attend the College - making the award truly accessible to all - and you can complete each task at your own pace.

How will my learning be enhanced?

At the start of the course, you will be supplied with a set of leading learning tools and support materials; these will be yours to keep on completion of the programme. All successful students will finish the course with a nationally recognised Level 2 qualification.
