Course Assessments The Educational Psychology course is marked through a process of continuous assessment guided by your tutor following ABC's guidelines. This means that your qualification will be awarded according to your performance on assessments rather than by taking an exam. Each element is followed by a written assignment, which is submitted and marked by your tutor. There is no external examination required. We send the full course out, you then read through the course in your own time and complete the assignments which you send to your tutor for marking. There is no word count for these assignments. However, one sentence answers will be rejected and you will have to re-submit it for marking. Upon verification of the activities, exercises and assignments, a certificate of achievement will be awarded by the national awarding organisation ABC, as confirmation that your written work has met all of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the programme.
Course Duration We recommend you spend approximately 90 hours of your time studying for the Educational Psychology 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 Award in Educational Psychology in as little as six months, or take up to a year, if you prefer – the choice is yours.

The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner. The course itself has been designed by Kendal Publishing to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met. A regular review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process. ABC Awards is a leading national Awarding Organisation, regulated by Ofqual, and the Welsh Government.
