Transfer of credits/prior learning

The Dyslexia Action Professional programme is a competency-assessed course at Level 7, Master’s level, which requires tutor assessment of the candidate undertaking teaching and assessment. This means that other academic programmes that have not included competency assessment or are at a lower level (e.g. Level 5 or Level 6) may not qualify for accreditation of prior learning (APL). We may however be able to offer some recognition of attainment.

For further details please see: accreditation of prior learning
