Just passed my Level 3 Teaching Assistant Diploma and have just found out it's not a QCF qualification and am really worried I just wasted my time and won't be able to work as a TA, has anyone else had problems getting work with this qualification

I'm doing this course too and believe it is as you said.. QCF.. There are different courses and different level 3's.. I just finished a cache level 3 for example, which is just an award. Let me know if I'm mistaken!! :) x

So sorry Kerry.. Perhaps you can carry the credits over to a QCF course..? If you're over 24yrs could get a learning loan..? Good luck :(    :)

I've just checked and mine is QCF. Did they not explain it properly ? Why would they sell a course that does not give you a qualification at the end ?

Did u pay for the course ? And was it online ? I feel sorry for you i hope you find a way. The first college i was planning to do childcare from was abc award and they didn't even tell me what QCF was. Luckily i did ask another college and they explained it to me. I hope something gets sorted for you..

We offer a QCF level 3 course and a Level 3 non-QCF award.

I asked at the beginning of the course if it was an accredited course and was told yes, just a bit unhappy that I've paid all the money and all that work for a course that is not accepted in any school because it's not on the QCF, really don't see the point of a course that can't be used

You can contact QFC where they are really helpful. I've contacted them, too.
