If you are interested in taking part in this Award, complete the registration form for access to the Learn course.  Please note, a member of the team will check your registration form and contact you if there is a more suitable Award version available to you, but you will gain immediate access to the online course materials. 

If you are undertaking work experience at the University, please make sure you log into MyCareerHub (when registering below) and Learn using your student account not staff account, so your Award is linked to your student record.
