Dual qualifications

If you are looking to fast track your career and and gain recognition for a greater array of skills, a dual qualification is your perfect option. 

Dual qualifications combine two separate, but related, nationally recognised certificates or diplomas, delivered at the same time.  This gives you a simpler pathway to further study and employment, including an apprenticeship if relevant.  

With several of our dual qualifications sharing units, or by adding some extra units, this reduces the amount of time you need to complete the quals - and of course, by not having to pay for two full courses, a reduction in the amount of overall fees!

By gaining more skills and knowledge in a shorter amount of time, you put yourself ahead in your employment prospects whether you’re looking to enter the workforce or advance your career.

Talk to your lecturer or academic area for details of how you can take advantage of a dul qualification.
