Our entry level qualifications are designed to help those who have been excluded from developing digital skills as part of a standard education or to help those get started with a basic understanding of how to get online and do so safely.

Our Digital Learning Design and Digital Educators qualifications are purposed to enable teaching staff to design and develop digital, interactive learning resources and deliver blended learning content alongside existing teaching to enhance the student experience.

The qualifications also provide an entirely new career path for successful learners to develop learning resources for education practitioners across all levels as well as engaging teaching staff with pedagogical changes and provide opportunities for colleges and training providers to meet national targets and recommendations.

As technology becomes ubiquitous in the classroom, Ascentis, in partnership with the E Learning Academy and the Association of Colleges, has developed these qualifications that recognise the changes in education delivery and provides the skills to create 21st Century toolkits for teachers at all levels enabling them to meet the needs of a tech-savvy generation of learners.


Who are these qualifications for?

Our suite runs from Entry Level to Extended Diplomas at Level 4 so our qualifications can apply to those who are just starting out and wishing to gain a rudimentary understanding of the internet and digital technology. These qualifications require no prior learning or experience, just a willingness to succeed.

Our more advanced qualifications particularly surrounding Digital Learning Design can lead to any number of roles including:

  • Scriptwriters
  • Digital Learning Assistant
  • Technology Enhanced Learning Coordinator

These qualifications can be used by Employers to enhance and expand their employees skill level since many can be done unit based and through distance learning.
