ECU’s Professional Knowledge Qualifications are considered and awarded as the Life Long Learning. This is executed through dedicated scheme are to be visualised to be the first step and then follow the Career Learning by the following dedicated pathway. We could proudly say that pass thirty years ago this was not known or acceptped purely for the economic reasons, but no institutions come forward endorse the Hands on Life Learning achievement and offer any creditworthy certifications by traditional academic institution’s. This why European Continental University (ECU) in conjunction with their Independent Assessors and Verifiers UK-Commission for Consistent Learning (UK-CCL) came up in handling these types of working individuals by taking into account their work experiences and learning at work and trainings that they have completed to come under one of the following two schemes.
The above to schemes are executed by respective person’s PriorWork Experience& Learning, attending Training & Workshops, Assignments, Dissertation, andattending Oral Examinations in person or Skype Video Conferences. ECU’s Professional Knowledge Awards are focused upon busy working individuals giving them the second chance to returning to Professional Education after a career break or those who want to improve their career prospects. To this end ECU Executive Board of Governors and Trustees had joined force with UK-Commission for Consistent Learning g (UK-CCL) to carry out the independent, Examination, Assessment and verification via the dedicated schemes of ACPD and APEL to confer the appropriate Professional Knowledge Degree awards. The ACPD and APEL methodology is committed to bring out the Non-Academic qualifications which is known to be Professional Entrepreneurial Degree Qualifications. But the APEL is focused to elevate Professional Knowledge Further Educational Degree Qualifications. To this effect UK-CCL has come up in setting two International Partnerships to execute this services to the highest quality.
To perform the ACPD and APEL method of delivery GRAUADTE COLLEGE OF LONDON, which is approved and recognised by many awarding institutions as an approve facilitator for Further Professional Education Institute. Individuals who are engaged in day to day work can achieve his/her goals by way of ACPD Schemer by way attending Seminars, Workshops and Oral Examinations.Lifelong Learning and Continuing Professional Development is for the APEL route with the emphasis in today’s world of Professional Further Education. ECU’s Board of Governors has made possible for working adults who wants to elevate themselves to professional level by way of following the one of the dedicated scheme of ACPD or APEL.
As today’s market demand the Working Executives who has substantial hands work experience often acquire core knowledge in their professional areas without formal academical learning or training, these candidates will profit by enrolling via Oral Examination and submitting detail profile of enrooting via ACPD schemes to achieve the Entrepreneurial certification. But when you take into account of Executives who do follow the APEL scheme wishes to be known as Learning Professional under an Accelerated Learning Programme submission of Assignments and dissertation to earn a reputable Professional Knowledge Qualifications of Either Master or Doctorate and this will not require the normal textbooks to reading or carrying out special researches or to follow-up said, curriculum to sit for formal exams. This option two dedicated option laid out by UK-CCL, as to the Professional Quality Standards of ISO 9001:2008 will bypass the traditional class rood academical learning and three hours examinations. This methodology is to concentrate on a new developments and trends in each profession to uplift with a very valuable and creditworthy certification from ECU.
