COURSE ASSESSMENT 

This course is marked through a process of continuous assessment guided by your tutor following NCFE guidelines. This means that your qualification will be awarded according to your performance on assessments rather than by taking an exam.

When you have completed the programme, your tutor needs to verify that you have worked through all parts of any Workbooks, Activities and Exercises successfully.

Upon verification of the activities, exercises and assignments, a nationally recognised certificate will be awarded by NCFE as confirmation that your written work has met all of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the programme.

COURSE DURATION 

We recommended you spend approximately 120 hours of your time studying for the Journalism & Fiction Writing course . The pace of study is completely up to you. To give an example, if you dedicate 2 hours a week to the course it would take you a year to complete but  if you could spare 4 hours a week you could complete it in six months.

Get started today, and you can earn your Level 3 NCFE Award in Journalism & Fiction Writing in as little as six months, or take up to a year, if you prefer – the choice is yours.
