hello and welcome to our programme
How do I know that I have the required knowledge?
When you join us, you will be provided with a Therapy Learning Resource support package containing all the knowledge & skills information you need to ensure you know what you need to know.
Who will my assessor be?
You will need 2 assessors. Your support assessor will guide you through the process and ensure you are on track with your learning, assess your assignments and ensure quality assurance. Your skills assessor will assess you at a location convenient for you so you don’t have to travel too far.
How long will the process take?
This does depend on you! The learning resources and assignments need to be completed so it depends on how much time you can dedicate to this. The support package contains health & safety, professional standards, anatomy & physiology as well as technical skills. You need to have the programme signed off before progressing to the practical assessment.
What if I can't see an assessor within reasonable travelling distance?
We are recruiting suitable assessors on a weekly basis. Our aim is that you won’t have to travel more than an hour to get to your assessment site, however, this may not be possible for some locations or skill areas. If you contact us, we will make your requirements a priority. In the meantime, you can complete the theory part of the qualification if you wish.
How much will this cost?
There are 2 costs involved. The first is the learning support fee which is £125-£175 depending on the unit. This includes all theory assessment, certification & support, and is active for six months.
The second cost is paid to your skills assessor for the practical assessments, charged at £150 per day
How many practical assessments will I need?
This will depend on the technical unit you are converting, however, we aim to create a situation where you will need 1-2 assessment days.
I am worried that I wont pass a practical assessment
This is natural to doubt your skills, however, we truly believe that most accredited trainers teach a good standard of techniques. If you are concerned, we can arrange a skills mentor to watch your treatments through a Zoom link and offer any pre-assessment support and guidance. There is an additional £25 charge for this additional service.
