Using Your ULN
All of our qualifications are credit-based, which means that you can build these up and add them together to achieve the full award. Because our qualifications have been designed like this it means that you may be able to build up your qualification through taking courses at more than one provider. Since 2008, all learners have been issued with a Unique Learner Number (ULN), which you can use to track what you have achieved and what steps you might need to take to achieve your career goals. For more information about your ULN, visit www.learningrecordsservice.org.uk.
