Great to hear there will be somebody else doing the course too :)
I have only just started the course this week and having a few teething problems with epearl the virtual learning environment they are using for it. Did you use epearl for your level 2 course? If so did you get on ok with it? Good luck with your results for level 2 btw.
Also, how long do you think it would take you to complete this course? I thought we had a year but I have only been given a month per unit so am being expected to complete it in 5 months.....I think that might be putting the pressure on a bit!
I didn't use pearl for level 2, I think it's a new system for Stonebridge, I just used my own portal on the Stonebridge website, so easy too, although I did have an issue uploading a video file in the initial assessment, I haven't come across anything else as yet
I also have 5 months to do it which is pushing it a bit, I was hoping for longer but I guess the faster its completed the better, it's just a lot really to commit to, I think I foresee a few late nights ahead haha
I'm a bit unsure about the system, trial and error I suppose....
Give me a shout if you want to discuss anything though, I'm always open for a chat ☺️
Don't give up, it can be done I'm sure, I will be here if you need anything
Emma, I would contact admin and tell them your situation, 16 days is far too much pressure, Im sure they can give you an extension, it's standard 28 days per assignment so it says x
Chin up girls, come on we can do this!!
I've sent a email to my tutor to clarify... I also had the same thing I applied in December but only got course fully approved and access sent to me a few days ago. I have also mentioned this to my tutor and asked for a extension on assignment one and two. I received a reply saying that is fine and when could I complete the assignment by... I've given myself another week. Will keep you posted on the response regarding... the duration of the course.
hang in there I think its just teething problems
I am due to start the NCFE Counselling Level 3 Diploma course on 22nd March.
Really looking forward to starting the course, although I too have noticed it states 12 months to complete the course on Stonebridge course website but on PEARL states 5 months? Oh well, as long as we all get our Diplomas I don't mind :-)
I am using this qualification to go on to study at Leeds Beckett Uni next year so REALLY need to do well on this course :-)
What is everyone else plans after the course ?
Oh, before I go. Has anyone either completed or thinking about the practical elements to the course already and how this will work ?
Hope everyone is well and hope to chat soon.
Im not sure how to present it.......
I am sure we will all complete the course with distinctions. Were all on the course together, and will help each other to succeed..... ...am sure of it.
Here is a little quote I use when I'm unsure as to how confidant I really feel..... Its written in the from pages of my books so I use this quiet a lot.
"When your back is to the wall, and all there is, is fear.... Head on... Success is just ahead of you"
This tells me that no matter what emotions, feelings or fears I have, I know that once I work and push my way past what ever is stopping me, I will be a better person than I was before.
Anyway.... Lol on a lighter note.... Can anyone recommend any books which would coincide with the course to deepen learning and understanding on the subjects we are about to learn ?
If I can be of any help to anyone on the course, drop me a message... The same may be asked in return too..lol
Good luck guys and stay calm..... Lol
Although the content is in way more depth, I feel more confident doing level 3 because of the level 2
Good luck to you huni let us know how u get on x
