The AATT is proud to offer all students the opportunity to re-visit any course studied again FOC. This stands us apart from the rest. We are happy to offer a day 'Refresher' course where a student only requires ONE day of a multiple day course.
Class numbers are considerably less than other teaching establishments. We offer 'Fast Track' courses and a student must therefore be 'able to' complete a course of this nature in terms of: English Language, Written Assignment, ESOL and Knowledge.
Certificates are issued in the name stated on the application form. Certificates will not be sent if any fees are outstanding. Please allow up to 8 weeks for the certificate to be produced. The Angel Academy reserve the right to issue certificates when the student is deemed to be capable. Course attendance does not ensure automatic certification.
Exam Papers and Tests by Email or Post
It is our responsibility to issue exam and test papers to a student when promised. The student must allow up to 14 days for receipt (ABT accreditation only). The Angel Academy hold complete responsibility over when/how they conduct their process of testing a student and when we feel your level of knowledge and capability is certifiable.
Please allow up to 4 weeks for marking homework which is ABT accredited.
VTCT Portfolio and Submission of Assignments
After submission of completed assignments/portfolio, please allow 6-8 weeks for marking. This must be considered by each student prior to submission of work. If completion dates are set and the above timeframe is not considered, a student will not be able to complete.

NVQ UNIT IN A SUBJECT
The AATT are one of the ONLY schools to offer single unit accreditation for the all NVQ Level 2 and 3 subjects.
The process of completion will be the same as the NVQ/VTCT guidelines in terms of passing and certification.
Whilst we appreciate that a student would like to complete in a specific timeframe, the Academy has a course criteria which each student agrees to upon enrolment. The course prospectus clearly states the process of how an NVQ/VTCT course is structured.
An Assessment is carried out AFTER all lessons have been attended, and all Assignments, Written work and Portfolios have been completed satisfactorily. Upon completion, instructions will be given for Assessment and further for Exam dates. An assessment CANNOT be given prior to completion of the full course and its units.
If a student fails competency of an assessment, they will need to perform another until deemed competent.

Course criteria is taught in accordance with each student. If a student requests an upgrade to NVQ, the course criteria will be amended in accordance. If they later change their mind, the criteria is invalidated.
ABT Course Criteria
This is a nationally recognised certification which is taught to VTCT/NVQ standards as the option to upgrade is offered for maximum 3 years.
If a student is unable to complete a VTCT/NVQ qualification they are then able to complete and be certificated by ABT.
This may be offered as an alternative within the first 12 weeks of registration with The AATT if it is clear that a student cannot fulfil their obligations and VTCT/NVQ registrations made when they are full capable of achieving.
All centres have an expiry date. The AATT offers a one year completion. If this deadline cannot be met and under certain situations we offer an extension. However the VTCT/NVQ will remove any student registration if the course has not been completed within 3 years. This is their legal position and not one set by The AATT.
If a course date is attended, a refund will not be given unless there was a failure to deliver the criteria as set out in our Lesson Plan and Scheme Of Work. This would be reported to the I.V for further consideration and review.
