Advanced Certificate Online
An Online Advanced Certificate delivered through Distance Learning and Home Study from ADL, is a Level 4 attainment. As a guide, level 2 is at the level of a G.C.S.E. and level 3 is at the level of an A level, so the learning you will receive from completing your course is at the level of a a HNC, Please remember that levels are an indication of how much you learn, not how difficult the course is. Therefore, unless otherwise stipulated, you do not require G.C.S.Es, AS levels or A levels to take an Advanced Certificate with ADL.
All our Advanced Certificate Programmes levels have been bench-marked to the UK FHEQ (Framework for Higher Education Qualifications) and the EQF (European Qualifications Framework) by ASIQUAL, a UK based awarding body offering qualifications that recognise both students’ academic achievements and evidenced skills.
Get a Qualification: Qualifications for our Advanced Certificates, are endorsed and issued by TQUK (Training Qualifications UK) for which The Academy for Distance Learning is a recognised centre. TQUK is an Ofqual Approved Awarding Organisation and ADL's recognition number with TQUK is:1709318. In order to maintain our Recognised Centre status, we are subject to yearly EVs (Evaluation Visits) to ensure that we conform to, and are meeting the high standards demanded by a company listed on the Ofqual Register. The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) is a non-ministerial government department that regulates qualifications, exams and tests in England. Colloquially and publicly, Ofqual is often referred to as the exam "watchdog".
In addition to receiving a TQUK/ADL Advanced Certificate, students will also receive an official transcript of their grades, signed and authorised by the Academy's Registrar.
