Do you prefer a course where you can study at a time and place convenient to you? Then our external courses may be of interest to you.
External delivery allows you to study whenever and wherever you choose. It is perfect for people who are working during the day and want to study around other commitments such as a work roster, and it is also good for people with families who want to work around their family commitments.
Even though you are studying from home, you are given all the help and support needed. An ACCCO trainer is allocated to you who will support you in meeting your goal of completing the qualification through regular contact, email and phone support as needed.
With External study, you are sent a learning guide with all the information required to complete the unit. You read through the learning guide, answering questions, doing activities and completing tasks. If you wuld prefer to study this theroetical information online, then you may be interested in Student Portal.
External students all need to be employed or volunteering in a children's service to complete the practical components of the course. The ACCCO Trainer can support you to arrange this placement if you don't already have one*. The trainer also arranges to see you in this setting on a regular basis to support practical work as well.

*ACCCO does not provide support for obtaining employment but as a student, you have access to the section of the website where employers advertise their vacancies.
