COURSE MATERIALS

One of the key benefits of studying Anatomy and Physiology with My Distance Learning College is that we deliver the entire package of course materials in a single dispatch. This enables our students to get a real feel for the overall structure and content of the course, and measure their progress much more effectively. The modular method of delivery favoured by other providers breaks up and interrupts the learning process. It prevents students from moving faster through sections they are more confident with, or taking more time over the deeper ideas that need more thought and understanding.

Focus Award Accredited at Level 3

This course has been endorsed by Focus Awards through their Focus on Quality Provision (FQP) Scheme. The content and depth of study required have been benchmarked at Level 3.

Focus Awards is a member of the Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB) and is regulated by Ofqual. Established 2011, Focus Awards is founded on three core values – Honesty, Integrity and Fairness – that underpin everything they do.

The FQP scheme is designed to give endorsement to non-regulated qualifications in a wide range of subjects. On successful graduation you will receive a Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement and a Diploma from My Distance Learning College.

Although the course is comprehensive and informative, we do expect you to carry out your own investigations. After all, if you are not prepared to do your own research, you should be asking yourself if this is the right subject choice for you!

If the prospect of exams frightens the life out of you, there is even more good news. There is no final exam! The low price of the course includes dedicated tutor support, regular critique and feedback. All assignments are marked by one of our professional tutors. You can even pay by instalments on Direct Debit if funds are tight.

Don't delay, order today. This course will really give you some traction, and get you moving fast.

They are not qualifications; on successful graduation from the course you will receive a Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement and a Diploma from My Distance Learning College.

FQP courses are ideal for professionals required to demonstrate commitment to CPD (Continuous Professional Development), and for those wanting to gain specialist knowledge of a particular subject.

Can anyone do the course?

Anybody with a reasonable standard of general education will be able to cope with the academic demands of the course. If you can read and write well enough to complete a job application, and have a good grasp of basic maths (add, subtract and divide) you should have no problems. The course materials are written in simple everyday language and the answers to your assignments will be completed in the same style. In addition to the comprehensive course materials provided, you will receive a Study Guide to assist you, and, of course, you will have the support of your tutor.

What will the course cover?

The course covers the areas of study listed above through detailed exploration of the subject matter. You will also receive tasks and prompts for further personal exploration and research to carry out so that you can gauge how much you have learned. There are plenty of examples to help you but personal research is a prerequisite at this level, so be prepared to use your initiative to fully answer the assignments.

Is the course accredited?

This course has been accredited through the Focus Awards “Focus on Quality Provision” (FQP) Scheme. The course content and depth of study required have been benchmarked against Level 3 on the Qualification Credit Framework (QCF).

Although the course is comprehensive and informative, we do expect you to carry out your own investigations. After all, if you are not prepared to do your own research, you should be asking yourself if this is the right subject choice for you!

What does the course prepare me for?

The course materials and accompanying tasks will help you to develop the necessary knowledge and confidence to successfully complete the tutor marked assignments. The tasks are designed to encourage you to apply your knowledge, and help you to develop relevant research and academic writing skills.

This course has been accredited through the Focus Awards “Focus on Quality Provision” (FQP) Scheme. The course content and depth of study required have been benchmarked against Level 3 on the Qualification Credit Framework (QCF). Your work is not graded; assignments are simply identified as Pass, Fail or Referred. For assignments not passed at first attempt, your tutor will advise on the improvements to be made to obtain a Pass on a reworking. Certificates will be issued by Focus Awards on successful completion of all the assignments.

How do I send in my work?

You email your assignments one at a time for marking. This enables your tutor to properly assess the standard and style of your work for each section, and give you feedback which will be used on your next assignment; a process of continuous improvement. On obtaining feedback and comment you will either move on to the next assignment or review and rework the one you submitted.

If I fail an assignment can I retake it?

Yes, your tutor will ask you to resubmit your assignment and give you some pointers as to where you could improve.

What do I receive once I order the course?

We will send you ALL the course materials. This consists of a folder and Study Guide, plus a package of bonus materials and items to enhance your learning experience.

Is there a time limit or any deadlines?

The course should be completed within 12 months, but can be extended for a small fee if your tutor supports your request. As a rough guide, depending on your circumstances and commitment, the course can be completed in about 100 study hours. There are no other deadlines to meet.

Is there a word count for my assignments?

There is a suggested word count given for the tutor marked assignments, but it is more important that you demonstrate to your tutor that you have fully understood the questions; a comprehensive Study Guide is included with the course. Many students start slowly at first, but your tutor will give guidance to help and encourage you to improve.

What if I don’t like the course? Can I send it back?

Yes, if you are not happy with the course and feel it is not for you, you can return it within 7 days in accordance with the terms and conditions on our web site: www.mydistance-learning-college.com.

Do I need a computer to take the course?

Yes, you will need access to email and the internet to submit assignments and do research. Most students also find word-processing their assignments is much more convenient than writing by hand.

Is the course paper-based or online?

The course is paper-based and comes in a sturdy folder. Alternatively, start your course immediately and save £££’s by studying exclusively online, with full access to your course materials and tutor support, studying has never been easier!

Why did you choose this subject?

I always enjoyed science at school – particularly biology, as I have always been amazed at how our bodies work. I did not really know what I wanted to do specifically until I went to college. During the summer holidays I did some work experience at the nursery where my mum works and worked specifically with a small group of children with physical disabilities. I saw some of the challenges that the children faced and was interested in finding ways to help them to become more independent.

I started researching online and found information on the work of occupational therapists and knew that this was the area that I wanted to work in.

When I started to apply for a place at university (for the BSc in Occupational Therapy), one of the institutions ran a 3-day taster course – we spent the first day at university, the second day shadowing an occupational therapist and the third day back at the university. I learned so much in just those 3 days that I couldn’t wait to start the degree!

I now currently work in the community with children with disabilities, assessing them within the home, community and school to enable them to become more independent.

What activities does an Occupational Therapist do on a day-to-day basis?

Occupational therapists work with people to understand their lifestyle and needs, so that they can create a plan to help them live more independently. Typical activities include liaising with carers and other professionals (e.g. doctors, social workers, family, physiotherapists, equipment suppliers, etc.), writing reports and attending meeting to discuss planning, treatment and reviews for a client, advising on specialist equipment, and advising on environmental alterations (e.g. installing wheelchair ramps)./p>

How much can I expect to earn as an occupational therapist?

The starting salary for an occupational therapist in the NHS is typically £21,176 - £27,625. This then increases to £25,528-£34,189 for occupational therapist specialists, and £30,460 - £40,157 for an advanced occupational therapist.
