- How can I book my chosen course?
You can book your chosen course by completing the “Registration” and paying for the course via Paypal or Credit Card.
Do I need to pay for the whole course at the start of enrolment ?
No, although we do need certain aspects of the course to be paid for initially, we do offer a two instalment payment plan with most courses. Once the course has been completed, further payment will be required to obtain certificates, assessments and, in some cases, observation fees.
Why is the password and username for the members’ pages designated by ourselves (UKTC)?
For Data Protection purposes we need to have a very disciplined password and username system in order to maintain as secure a data protection protocol as possible with regard to learners’ individual details. This is very important for all of our peace of minds.
Strengths & Weaknesses (SWOT analysis).
One of the most controversial exercises we embark upon is the self analysis exercise named “Strengths & Weaknesses & finding opportunities and threats (SWOT analysis) “. This is very useful for the student/learner themselves to realise where effort is needed to be made and as a realisation of where others may view them. We have recently conducted this exercise upon our staff to find that they remain as they were near exactly last year. I am very concerned at these findings as its such as a self-searching and sometimes upsetting experience although the benefits may be substantial. After all most of us think that we have a good mind with good working ethics and have good morals. My conclusions are that regardless of the possible upsetting nature of this exercise we must continue to challenge ourselves and seek betterment in our chosen career.
What does the word “Plagiarism” mean ?
The word “Plagiarism” came from the word “kidnap”. If you copy and paste in any context you are then kidnapping someone else’s work.
Plagiarism can be overt or covert, intentional or unintentional.
Think about the following:
Are you kidnapping or copying someone else’s work and claiming it as your own?
Intentionally copying and pasting to save time and not asking for their permission or crediting them?
Using an idea which came from some other source?
Allowing someone to write your assignments on your behalf?
Or possibly even purchasing an assignment?
What does plagiarism look like?
Using text and forgetting to cite it.
Using another person’s idea without asking for their permission or crediting it to them.
Stealing another individual’s paper.
Allowing someone to write any aspect of an assignment on your behalf.
So how to avoid Plagiarism?
The best way to avoid plagiarism is to develop and practice good research habits.
Write down the citation details of all the sources you consult.
You can quote from sources and websites providing that you use quotation marks and cite the source.
Keep notes (paraphrased or quoted) and their citation details together.
Learn the correct way to paraphrase properly – it isn’t just changing a few words.
In your notes, clearly differentiate among quotes, paraphrasing, summaries, common knowledge and personal opinion.
Learn how to correctly cite different works
What is an Awarding Body?
An awarding body designs, develops, delivers and awards the recognition of learning outcomes (knowledge, skills and/or competences) of an individual following an assessment and quality assurance process that is valued by employers, learners or stakeholders. In addition, they are registered and responsible to the Office of Qualifications. (OFQUAL). Ofqual is a non-ministerial government department that regulates qualifications, exams and tests in the UK.
They focus on:
- Developing high quality qualifications that meet the needs of employers and learners.
- Approving centres and working with them to ensure high quality delivery of qualifications.
- Carrying out activity designed to assure the quality of the qualifications awarded.
- Developing innovative products and services to support their centres and learners.
