Frequently Asked Questions...
We receive hundreds of course enquiries every day from people who are excited about our highly acclaimed writing for children online course.
If your question is not answered here then please contact us and one of our support team will be delighted to help you.
Do I need to attend any classes?
No. The course is entirely e-learning, which means that all modules, tests and resources are delivered to you online through our secure e-learning platform. There are no physical classes to attend. One of the great benefits of e-learning is that you can study the course online, during times convenient to you. Best of all, we give you full life-time access.
Do I need any computer or technical skills?
No. We have designed this course with the most technically challenged user in mind! If you can point and click a mouse (or touch and swipe the screen on your Smart Phone or Tablet device) then you can take this course.
Are there any age restrictions for registering?
The age range of our students varies significantly from school and college students, right up to senior citizens. The course content has been designed to accommodate anyone of any age and ability. However, in the interest of children’s online safety we do have a minimum age requirement of 13 years. See our terms and conditions for more details.
Do I need any writing experience or qualifications to take this course?
No prior knowledge, experience or qualifications are required to take this course. The course has been designed for everyone from absolute beginners to keen amateurs; we have assumed nothing in advance. The language used is designed to be simple to understand and the course interface intuitive and easy to follow with no complicated jargon.
You can learn more about each of the 18 modules within the course here. As part of Write Storybooks for Children you also receive automatic access to additional areas of the site, such as our download area containing additional training materials along with our chat wall and discussion forum.
How long do I get access to the course for?
You get full, unrestricted life-time access to the course which you can access at any time 24/7. There are no time limits, no restrictions of any kind and no pressure whatsoever!
Do I have to take any tests during the course?
Yes. We have developed an advanced self-assessment testing system designed to ensure an efficient and effective learning experience. At the end of each module there is a multiple-choice self-assessment test consisting of 10 questions (18 tests in total).
Each test has a minimum passing score which you must achieve before you can move onto the next module in the course. You can take each module test as many times as you like until you pass, at which point your passing results are recorded in our national database and contribute towards your final score. Our testing system assesses your answers and calculates your score instantly.
This means no more waiting days or weeks for an assessor to mark your results and get back to you, like other more outmoded courses.
How am I graded?
Your overall passing grade is calculated as you move through the course and complete each module test. Your final score is an overall average grade of all 18 module tests. Your final grade is then printed onto your pass certificate.
There are no time-limits for completing individual modules and no time limits for taking the tests. However, once you decide to start a test it must be completed in one go. You cannot stop a test midway through and return to it later, like you can with the course content. You can view your course history and your current overall grade at anytime during the course.
We’re positive you’ll find it a delightful, relaxing and effective way of learning.
Are any books or manuals sent to me?
No, all learning is carried out via our secure E-Learn website, all the course content is online for you to access at any time 24hrs a day. The great benefit of e-learning is that you can study at home in your own time and at your own pace.
You can combine achieving professional standard training along with a qualification, in and around your job and family commitments. It is this level of flexibility that makes our e-learning course the ideal choice for most people. All you need is a computer or hand-held device with internet access to take this course.
Can you tell me more about the certificate I will receive?
Everyone who completes the course receives an attractive pass certificate which details all of the modules you have completed. Your certificate will indicate a percentage grade to show how well you have completed the test questions.
It is important for you to take your time to complete each unit to ensure you answer as many questions as possible accurately. You will receive a self-printable PDF version of your certificate which you can download immediately on completing the final module of the course.
