how can i complete my diploma?
Posted: 22/08/14 by Emily Winston
I have just finished a year at college doing a Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Business and got told mid July that I can't finish my second year of the course due to the college's funding as I am 19 and other reasons. I have just moved to London and work full time now as I thought I won't be able to return to college but I want to complete my diploma and do the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business but as they told me so last minute I am struggling to find a college in London that will take me on as I have already completed some of the units the college would do in the second year and I would like to either finish the diploma as a distance learner where the college send me the assignments, I complete them by a deadline and email them back to be marked or I do it as an apprentice where I get day release once or twice a week to go into college and do the work and still have the practical work by working the other 3 days. As I understand you can't complete this diploma as a distance learner because there are certain conditions the assignments have to completed in. I wondered if there was anyone I could contact such as the awarding body who would be happy for me to pay for the course and get the assignments sent to me or complete them at a college once or twice a week
The course you are part way through is probably a BTEC which is awarded through Pearson. You should contact their study support team tomorrow (closed today)
You could also try speaking to someone at NCC Home Learning which is a major provider of distance learning packages. Call on 0800 970 2522 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
