Brand New Level 4 Forensic Science Diploma

Due to the popularity of our Level 3 Forensic Science Diploma, NCC Home Learning have now developed a Brand New Level 4 Forensic Science Diploma!

This Level 4 Diploma has been produced due to popular demand for our learners, and can be used as a progression route from our other Level 3 Criminology and Forensics courses, or as a starter course for more experienced learners.

Forensic Science is a fascinating subject and can most simply be defined as applying science to the law. The work of a Forensic Scientist is multidisciplinary drawing on many subject areas including chemistry, biology, physics, psychology and social science.

Forensic Scientists are primarily involved in collecting and examining trace material associated with crimes and crime scenes, with the aim of linking a suspect to the crime and ultimately providing impartial scientific evidence for use in a court of law.

NCC Home Learning’s new Forensic Science Level 4 Diploma contains 20 modules split across 3 units covering all the key areas of the science of criminal investigation.

The first unit, of the Forensic Science Diploma is comprised of the first 1-8 modules of the course and explores the science of crime scene investigation, also known as field forensics. The modules within Unit 1 examine the processing of the crime scene and the range of possible evidence available including, biological evidence, trace evidence, fingerprint evidence, ballistics evidence, evidence of arson and evidence of explosion.

The second unit contains 3 modules examining forensic pathology at the crime scene and forensic pathology at the mortuary before moving on to Forensic Anthropology which also spans work that takes place in both the mortuary and the laboratory.

The third and final unit of the Forensic Science Diploma focuses on forensic science that takes place in a controlled environment such as a laboratory. The remaining modules that make up Unit 3 examine forensic odontology, forensic entomology, forensic botany, forensic serology, DNA typing, forensic toxicology, forensic firearms identification, disputed documents examination and forensic vehicle examination.

The Forensic Science Level 4 Diploma is the latest course to be added into our ever popular Criminology and Forensics faculty. If you are you a fan of CSI and would like to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes or would like to progress in a related career, why not find out more about this enthralling new course.

Whether studying for interest or professional development, the forensic Science course is bound to keep you hooked!

Plus with a distance learning course from NCC Home Learning you can fit studying towards a qualification around a busy lifestyle, completing your home study course at your own pace in your own time.

There is no doubt that Personal Assistants are relied on heavily but when carried out successfully this can be a very satisfying and fulfilling job role.

The aim of the home study Personal Assistant Diploma is to provide an overview of the key areas of business understanding and personal skills that are required to work successfully in in the role of a Personal Assistant.

The course covers key subject areas in relation to the role of a Personal Assistant including understanding organisations, managing business information, legal and regulatory requirements and handling difficult situations to name just a few!

NCC Launches Food Hygiene At An Exceptional Price Of £9.99

Learners are now able to access training for less than £10.00 in the crucial business area of Food Hygiene. NCC has just released a self contained portfolio which can be studied at home, or in a work situation.

NCC’s workbook contains appropriate and up to date underpinning knowledge and activities/questions which will help to determine that sufficient knowledge has been understood by the learner. In addition, learners are required to complete a short multiple-choice end test to confirm that a satisfactory grade has been achieved. For all learners who are successful, a Certificate of Achievement from NCC will be provided. For those learners who wish to receive a certificate from an external Awarding Body, for an additional fee of £15 a certificate from the Awarding Body NCFE can also be applied for.

Tony Smith, Managing Director NCC, confirms that a significant amount of interest has been received following news that food hygiene training for can now be achieved for an unprecedented price of £9.99. At NCC we are always looking to add value to our ever growing portfolio of home learning courses and at this time many popular programmes are on offer to help learners progress with their education, whether this is to support a job application, such as for a Teaching Assistant or Events management diploma or to update qualifications such as distance learning A Levels.

The Food Standards Agency state that: “Food handlers must receive appropriate supervision, and be instructed and/or trained in food hygiene, to enable them to handle food safely. Those responsible for developing and maintaining the business’s food safety procedures, based on HACCP principles, must have received adequate training”.

“The requirements for training should be seen in the context of the nature and size of the business. There is no legal requirement to attend a formal training course or get a qualification, although many businesses may want their staff to do so. The necessary skills may also be obtained in other ways, such as through on-the-job training, self-study or relevant prior experience. The operator of the food business is responsible for ensuring this happens”.

With over 250 courses available and with programmes starting at £9.99 there has never been a better time to study home courses with NCC. There is also a standard fee of £9.99 for shipping and posting so we advise to buy in bundles to save on pennies!

Choosing a Home Learning Company

NCC Home learning commenced delivery to its first learners in May 2006 and has been built on a pedigree of delivery with Colleges of Further Education for over thirteen years and to hundreds of thousands of successful learners.

Over recent years many new home learning organisations have emerged and tempt interested learners with a variety of offers and describe and present their business extremely well. On the flip side, some may have an exciting, interesting and a visually appealing website but it would appear little substance.

Prospective learners could save themselves heartache and money by making a few checks before signing up, including: Does the home learning website have an appropriate business address and can you establish how long they have been providing education? Can they be found on independent review sites with testimonials (good and bad) from learners who they have supported? Do they offer full Awarding Body accreditation with their courses if this is important to the learner? Is their fee policy transparent, or does the learner have to pay for additional items such as reference materials, accreditation etc? Is their a cooling off period?

Many organisations also offer a ‘free learner goody bay’ including additional items such as a pen, note pad, highlighter pens, bag to keep course work in etc. These items are inevitably a cost to the provider and must be factored into the overall cost of the course – ask if a discount can be offered if the ‘free goody bag’ is not required.

The most important aspect of all though is to conduct thorough research as impulsive purchases may not always suit the learner’s needs fully. Many home learning companies offer similar courses and at wildly differing prices. Once a learner has decided upon a course subject area, an appropriate search in Google, or other search engines, will throw up many organisations offering a solution. It is recommended that learner’s contact a number of organisations and satisfy themselves that they have sufficient information, before committing to make a purchase.

NCC Home learning offers learners a professional solution with Awarding Body accreditation included within the course price for over 90% of the course offered. We have approximately 250 courses available, many of which are targeted at improving employability skills such as our Teaching Assistant Diploma, Distance Learning A Levels, and Computerised Book Keeping etc.

Tony Smith, Managing Director at NCC Home Learning, said: “Learners should consider as many education development options as possible before making a decision which could ultimately change their career options.”

He also stated that: “Learners should undertake appropriate research and if not totally satisfied, take a step back before making a purchasing decision and only commit when they know that they have found the right course, and that they know that they can commit the time necessary to achieve their goal.”
