The Course Directors Qualification guides you through creating and presenting a course from concept through to delivery. You will be required to invent a course of your own. You will be the owner of that course and it will be your intellectual property.
The course is made up of 5 modules. Each module will require a written document totalling not more than 1000 words. With each document completed you will start to build a portfolio for your course. With a document of 5000 words you will have a course that has been fully researched, fully referenced and ready to present to paying customers.
You will attend a one day course on how to work through the modules, what they mean and what the course markers are looking for. Then you'll have up to one year to complete the portfolio. Most people will be able to do this in less time.
The course will need to be researched from the following aspects:
- Conceptualisation of courses.
- Governance, Legalities and Regulatory Criteria.
- Resources and Finances.
- Course Locations.
- Schemes of Work, Plans and Delivery.
