Subjects and courses
A Certificate of Proficiency consists of an approved course or courses, from the Open Polytechnics portfolio of approved qualifications and courses.
The Certificate of Proficiency provides students with the opportunity to select a course or courses to develop their own individual programmes of study to meet their own learning needs or to test their ability to study at the appropriate level and to proceed to an approved qualification. A Certificate of Proficiency is useful where students want to study only one or two courses and do not intend to gain a qualification.
Students undertake the summative assessment associated with the course. No formal certificate is available for successful completion of a Certificate of Proficiency and the results of study are recorded on the student’s academic transcript.
A course which has been successfully completed may be credited towards a qualification for which the course is a component. Please contact us for more information before enrolling in a Certificate of Proficiency.
