If you are still in the military you can gain accreditation through the City and Guilds. This will vary with your rank. These are NVQs, or equivalent. For example, a flt lt can gain the 'equivalent' of an Honours Degree and a sqn ldr can gain the equivalent of a Master's. I believe you can still apply post service - 5 years? These are recognised qualifications.

You apply through your Education Section, or whatever it's called these days.

Any more info on this would be appreciated!

Also.

Pretty much a free degree if you have signed up for the Enhanced Learning Credit scheme.

Retrospective.

Think I see where you're going with this HM. You're trying to justify your, ineptitude, buffoonery, failures, misunderstanding, ignorance and general lack of service knowledge associated with rank and experience by becoming, retrospectively, a "Greensheilder"
Explains so much like the lime green Mankini perhaps....
And definately, unless you buy it having done no work, FOLA membership and any honorary status with such kindred groups (Flag?) should be immediately recinded....

Axel, you got me..busted..

..and the Mankini, sailor hat (worn at jaunty angle) and the road bike (the owner bought a new seat after my trip around the mess) were all borrowed.

Try via Google -

Staffordshire Uni Armed Forces degrees

RAF Learning Forces

City and Guilds Senior Awards

Those should give you quite a few options.

With that amount of time in the Forces why not go straight for an MSc using your ELCs to fund most of the tuition and let your budget holder pay your T&RE.. City Uni in London does a great set of 3 MSc courses in Air Transport Mgt, Air Maint Mgt and Air Safety Mgt. Your Mil service will qualify you to do the MSc without the schoolboy BSc.

It'll take some effort but well worth it

City Uni could be a long commute from Canada for HM........
You've got me interested though - from idling viewing PPRuNe on a Sunday afternoon whilst taking a break from working out how to make my fortune - I'm now enrolling onto a p/t MSc.
Heck - if my daughter can do it.........

Kind of one of the drivers behind my (very slow) OU degree.

Stopped the Teeterettes saying: "What do you know Pa, you've never been to Uni!!"

This may shorten the OU route.

Royal Air Force (RAF) | Credit transfer | Open University

Credit Transfer is only usually for Level 1, but every little helps.

I have worked in IT & Computing for many years and finally decided to do an OU degree in the subject. No credits for my years of labour, but if it lets you skip the level 1 courses so much the better. I found them all unbearably tedious and time-consuming. It also looks like some of the qualifications can give level 2 credit as well.

CharlieGolf, fascinating list, just a shame that it is so 'new'. Also what of the instructors who were trained before those dates, have A or B category ratings, or Spec N etc, but don't qualify when their students did.

What is so magical about the basic training but OCU studies and Sqn Cat checks are not considered?
