Certificate Courses Online
Online Certificates from ADL delivered through Distance Learning and Home Study, are a Level 4 attainment. For comparative purposes, level 2 is at the level of a G.C.S.E. and level 3 is at the level of an A level. Please note that levels are not related to how difficult a course is, but an indication of how much you will learn in the course.For this reason, unless stated differently, you will not require G.C.S.Es, AS levels or A levels to take an ADL Certificate course.
All our Certificates 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 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 Certificate, students will also receive an official transcript of their grades, signed and authorised by the Academy's Registrar.
