Endorsed Courses

Many of our short courses are Endorsed Programmes with the awarding organisations NCFE CACHE and TQUK. This means they are regularly reviewed by ourselves and subject specialists at the awarding organisation to ensure that they provide the best possible information, as well as ensuring legislation and best practice is up-to-date.

Our childcare and teaching courses are written in partnership with childcare professionals and educators, including writers from Community Playthings, while our care courses are written in partnership with health and social care professionals, and endorsed by Skills for Care. Our business courses are written by qualified professionals and managers, and endorsed by NCFE.

After successful completion of a short course, you will receive an e-Certificate from Laser Learning as a record of your achievement. Perfect for evidencing your CPD at work or showing to a prospective employer.

You will also have the option of buying an NCFE CACHE certificate after successfully completing an Endorsed Programme.

    Free E-Book

    We’ve written an e-book on encouraging positive behaviour in a learning environment, which is 100% FREE for you to download. This e-Book explores what positive behaviour looks like at an early years or school setting. It suggests strategies to reduce challenging behaviour and how to handle conflict between children. There is also a section on when challenging behaviour, or behavioural changes, may be a cause for concern or sign of an additional need.
