Students progress through the online 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 online, but tutors can monitor their progress. Once students have completed 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 (601/8967/8) has a total qualification time of 48.5 hours, including 18.5 guided learning hours. The LiFE Certificate (603/1933/1) has a total qualification time of 181 hours, including 94 guided learning hours.
