Psychology

About the Level 3 Psychology Certificate

Psychology is the study of the human mind. Psychologists spend their careers figuring out how our minds work and explaining different aspects of human behaviour. If you have ever wondered what causes depression, anxiety or aggression, and wondered why some people are prone to these feelings whilst others aren’t, an online psychology course could be the right choice for you.

When you study psychology online with learndirect, you develop a foundation knowledge of one of the most interesting academic disciplines there is. Altogether there are 23 modules to work through. These stimulating units cover everything from anxiety to gender identity and we guarantee that if you enrol, you’ll be thinking like Sigmund Freud in no time at all.

Level 1 Psychology Certificate of Achievement

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that learndirect has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 1 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed learndirect to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.

We are committed to helping employers, organisations and learners cultivate the relevant skills for learning, skills for employment, and skills for life.

Our knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables us to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.
