Please can someone advise how distance learning can be done on a full qualification - what happens to the compulsory notional hours?
I work with a training provider where they are successfully conducting distance learning for qualifications through skills programmes. The notional hours are absorbed through work-place-based assignments. This represents on the job - supervised learning, which is signed off by a manager or supervisor and counts as contact hours. Some of the notional hours are also absorbed by pre-assessment induction procedures. You can e-mail me on email@example.com and I can give you more specific details.
