Health and Well-Being Level 3 Certificate Course
Hi, Just wondering what qualification will be awarded upon completion of the course if I choose the accredited option? Thanks, Rebecca
Thank you for your question. If you select study option A, your qualification will be endorsed and issued by TQUK (Training Qualifications UK), which is an approved awarding organisation on the Ofqual Register. Ofqual is a non-ministerial government department and TQUK is listed as recognised.
I hope this helps.
Hi there, is this course (Health & Well-Being) worth anything in terms of UCAS points? Many thanks, Alice

If you want to use the qualification to help you in a university application, it is best to approach the university you are interested in first and ask them if they will accept our course towards their entry requirements.
