This is primarily a Technical Level qualification, equivalent in size to an A level. It has been designed to be taken alongside one or more substantial qualifications. Its main aim is to allow you to develop the core specialist knowledge, understanding and skills including dispute solving in the legal system and aspects of legal liability, required by the sector. It provides for progression into a broad selection of roles within the sector when supported with other level 3 qualifications such as the Pearson BTEC Extended Diploma in Business (Law).

The Pearson BTEC Level 3 courses are a well established route into a variety of specialist Higher Education (HE) courses and UCAS have reviewed the Applied Law qualification and have allocated it ucas points. Taken alongside the Pearson BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Business (Law) as a one-year course that contains 12 units, the combined qualifications are equivalent to 3 A-Levels. This course is ideal for anyone who has found themselves studying A-Levels but felt that they chose the wrong course or are not good at examinations and yet still wish to follow a course in law.
By studying Applied law in fast-track mode alongside the Pearson BTEC Diploma in Business (Law), you will make up the year that you previously lost on AS Levels and still be able to apply for university at the same time as your peers. It is good preparation for a law degree, plus, there are no exams. This course is not an easy alternative to A Levels. Students have to put a lot of hours into producing assignments of the standard expected. The guided number of learning hours required for the Applied Law course is 360 GLH plus 720 GLH for the Business (Law) Diploma course making a total of 1080 hours. More information on these BTEC course can be found here http://qualifications.pearson.com/en/qualification...

The Level 4 course will be taught on Tuesday evenings over a period of 6-9 months, with a choice of taking the Award, Certificate, or Diploma. We are now running the Level 4 Diploma as a qualification in its own right, which leads to member grade status of the BIFM with some experience requirements.
Those who achieve at least two units at Level 4 to qualify for the Award, or four units to qualify for the Certificate. An opportunity exists to switch to the Level 5 Award/Certificate/Diploma. After 26 years of experience in delivering IWFM courses, the college has found that most FM’s recognise Level 4 Certificate/Diploma as the choice qualification. The Level 4 route provides a sound foundation for initial learning, for which 6 credits can be transferred to the Level 5 Diploma.
The Level 4 programme is intended for those aspiring to become facilities managers or those in middle management with some FM experience, and who wish to enhance their specialist and management skills. Achievement of the level 4 Diploma and the requisite number of years experience will satisfy the entry requirements for IWFM Member grade. Read more.....

Applicants for the level 6 Diploma will normally be practising senior facilities managers
and would generally have budgetary and staff responsibility as part of their role. All applicants will need to provide a detailed CV of their career to date, details of prior qualifications and training and an organisation chart. Each learner will be interviewed for suitability. Applicants may apply for recognition of prior learning (RPL) or exemptions for certificated achievements outside of the Regulated Qualifications Framework
In addition to this form of delivery, we could see how you might be able to develop portfolios of work mapped against learning outcomes thereby reducing the amount of words you need to write in assessments. The tutor will tailor the deliveries to your specific workplace so the knowledge you gain will help you lead FM strategy by example. So as well as producing
reports and portfolios for the course, these will be directly transferable to
the workplace to be of maximum benefit to your place of work. Read more.......
