Level 4 Courses should comprise a minimum of 150 hours TLT, equivalent to 15 credits on the Qualifications and Credit Framework.
The number of GLH that contribute to the total learning time should be dictated by the time required for learners to achieve course learning outcomes and to gain a high level of practical competence. This may differ between courses.
TLT should include the total duration of the course in hours, including formal contact time as well as additional independent study (e.g. pre-course reading, homework, on-line tasks, assessment preparation etc).
