Please could somebody help me interpret a college qualification from 2003?Watch this thread
Ok so basically, my sister has a CACHE level 3 diploma in childcare and education issued in 2003. We are trying to work out what this equates to in UCAS points and exactly what grades she has. Basically, on her certificate it has 12 Units and a test paper, all with individual grades. On the front of the certificate (presumably the important part for actual qualifications) it has a B for the theoretical aspect and a C for the practical aspect. Any help would be much appreciated.
This is true, however she is only looking at applying to foundation degrees probably at very undersubscribed providers, possible even further education colleges. It's mostly wanting to know what she has.
Has she considered doing an access course?
She's a tad limited to locations she can go to because of a disability :/ I don't know what she's looked at but I think she's quite stubborn about not going too far away from home.
Whereas foundation years, even at lower ranking universities, tend to have a bit more of an expectation to hit the ground running. Although most universities do have lots of mature students doing foundation years, they often want to see some evidence of recent study, or possibly work and training in a relevant area. I would say the majority of people on foundation years aren't returners to education- however, my experience is mainly in science areas, where lots of people do foundation years purely because they didn't take the right combination of A-levels or equivalent qualifications.
Anyway, good luck to your sister in finding something suitable.
