Students progress through the units and, on completing them, can access the LiFE Award and Certificate to get a formal recognition of their work.
LiFE is made up of three units and is designed to be taken over a 12 month period. Students can complete the learning independently, but tutors can monitor their progress. Once students have completed the Unit 1, they can take the formal assessment, the LiFE Award. After completing Units 2 and 3, they can take the formal assessment, the LiFE Certificate.
The LiFE Award has a total qualification time of 48.5 hours, including 18.5 guided learning hours. The LiFE Certificate has a total qualification time of 179 hours, including 92 guided learning hours.
