Frequently asked questions

We understand you may have questions before you make the decision to join our academy. We have listed some of the most common questions below…

How many students are on each course?

As this course is the first of its kind, we’ve had a lot of interest from prospective students. We’re aiming to keep the numbers low on each course so each student gets as much individual attention as possible. The maximum number of each course will be 20.

What if I don’t get on to the first course I apply for?

We will do everything we can to accommodate your first choice. However, if the course is full you will be offered alternative dates.

If I want to cancel, can I get a refund?

It will be at our discretion on a case by case basis.

Is this a proper qualification?

The 9 week course will give students a certificate in quality assurance testing, awarded by AIM Awards.

What are the operating hours?

The course is taught from 10am to 4pm, Monday through Friday. The hours change during the external work experience week, when we ask our students to work full days (typically 9am to 5pm).

Will there be lunch provided/a lunch break?

There will be a 1 hour lunch break where students are responsible for their own lunch.  There are also regular sweet treats brought into the academy for everyone to enjoy!

Are you planning to launch the course at any other venues?

We plan on launching the course at other venues, we will share more information on this at a later date.
