To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.
You can find further information on qualifications/certificates and their levels on the Ofqual’s level descriptors page.
