  3. What does level and credit mean?
    • Level and credit measures the value of your learning.  The level gives an indication of the demand made on the learner and the complexity of the learning (Entry Level up to Level Four).  The credit value represents the amount of time it takes the average learner to complete the unit.  One credit represents 10 notional hours of learning.

      There are 3 sizes of qualification:

      • Awards (1 to 12 credits)
      • Certificates (13 to 36 credits)
      • Diplomas (37 credits or more)

      The qualification type (Award, Certificate, Diploma) represents the size of the qualification, not how difficult it is.
