Would it make sense to open a group on Facebook so it's easier to chat

I am happy to have/be a buddy, a fb group would be good I think!

Please, check if you are recognised. We all please them for recognition and they do nothing. This is just a Certificate, not something for getting a job.

My course is a level 3 diploma which is a recognised course and from this I can go on to do level 4 and 5? What course are you doing that's not recognised?

Recognised by whom? Stonebridge never replies openly. Mine is Psychology Advanced Diploma Level 4, but you not recognised. If you mean abc awards, they are not known. We need International Recognition and they can't understand it. I am from Greece, others from here and there, outside UK. Of course, BPS do not recognise them, if you live in the UK.

Qualifications and Credit Framework
The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) is the national credit transfer system for education qualification in England, Northern Ireland and Wales. The QCF replaces the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) which closed for accreditations at the end of 2010.

This is who my course are recognised by... I've confirmed it with my local college and this is the course I require for my next stage... Have you tried calling the college information?

Great for you if you are sure about that. I am recognised by abc awards, QCF is better from what I know. The College never replies directly or they just say nothing. It is surely just a certification and we are all worried about that.

I've checked mine before I committed to the course as I needed to know for the next course. You need to call or write a letter they can't not just reply.... It should say on the description of the course as well.

I knew about NFCE. On the description, they have some kinds of memberships, but Stonebridge Team has not understood the prerequisites and one bodysaid so, the other one never replies to any formal email. I've written to them, they never reply on this issue. They just say they are awarded by abc awards, not their students. There is a difference. Some think of a lawyer, others of asking for their money back. Thank you for getting back to me. Last days, they don't even inform me whether they have received my assignment!

Marina, as mentioned on your other threads, the diploma and award given for completion of your course (Psychology Advanced Diploma Level 4)  is clearly stated on the website, and we do not state that the course is recognised by ALL associations ALL over the World, as no qualification is.

Should an individual student wish to join a specific association, we would always ask that students contact associations directly with regards to membership questions.

Should you have any questions, please contact us directly on 01288 356300 or email info@stonebridge.uk.com.

This thread is not about the psychology course, this comment is not relevant here. Please respect the subjects of the threads. 

Best regards, 
Stonebridge Colleges

Thank you. I am still waiting replies to my emails, though. We can indeed be accredited by one or some, but some mentioned never reply. Even one recognisable body is enough, but which is that? I see that there is a great one: http://www.accreditedqualifications.org.uk/qualifications-and-credit-framework-qcf.html
