What happens on FUTC DL?

Every week for six weeks we’ll email you a different piece of coursework to complete with a small amount of writing. If you don't have access to a computer or laptop please let us know, and we'll post the coursework to you.

When all the coursework has been returned to us, it will be reviewed by an AVP volunteer assessor, who will give you feedback.

If you have successfully completed the course you’ll receive a copy of the assessment and a certificate. If we’d like you to look at some of the exercises again, we’ll let you know.

What participants have to say

“Thank you for the report and certificate from the AVP course. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the AVP team for all their help. Whilst I was doing the AVP course I found that my problem-solving skills improved. I now look at things very differently, and now take on board people's feelings and emotions, and their opinions and beliefs. My strong belief now is that my thinking has become more effective in controlling my behavior.” - Anonymous (FUTC DL)
