Anatomy and Physiology - Advanced

About the Level 4 Advanced Anatomy and Physiology Certificate

There is so much to be learnt about the human body that it couldn’t possibly be squeezed into one single qualification. This is why we have developed the Advanced Anatomy and Physiology course – to help students build on the knowledge they gained in the standard Anatomy and Physiology course. While this Level 4 programme brushes on some of the topics in the Level 3 course, the material offers a deeper insight into the workings of the human body.

The course material is spread over 10 engaging home study modules. These modules each focus on different aspects of the human body. From the skeletal system, joints, the heart and the brain to neurons and the voluntary and reflex actions of the autonomic nervous system, this qualification will provide learners with a fundamental understanding of our anatomy.

Who should study this course?

This Stonebridge College course has been primarily designed for students who have completed the Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology course who want to expand on their existing knowledge. If students have not completed the Level 3 qualification, we do recommend they do this first.

However, it is worth noting that this is not essential. If students have studied some modules in anatomy before, or they feel confident tackling the higher level distance learning material, then they are welcome to enrol on this human physiology online course.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this anatomy and physiology online home learning course, which is accredited by ABC Awards, students will be sent a certificate for their records. This certificate will prove to possible employers or further education institutions that the student has a good grounding in anatomy.

Students who want to study anatomy or medicine at a higher level may consider progressing on to an Access to Higher Education Diploma (Medicine and Health Care Professions). This could help gain them entry on to a university course. Those who study anatomy related subjects at university could end up in one of the following roles:

  • Doctor
  • Nurse
  • Physiotherapist

For more information about this course, give us a call on this number: 0121 392 8288

On completion of your course, you will receive two certificates:

Certificate 1 is issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges: Anatomy and Physiology - Advanced Diploma

Anatomy and Physiology - Advanced Diploma issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges, to view a sample of the college’s award, please click here.

Certificate 2 is issued by ABC Awards: Level 4 Anatomy and Physiology - Advanced Certificate of Achievement

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units you have completed as part of your course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges have undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met. A regular review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

Who are ABC

ABC Awards

ABC Awards is a leading national Awarding Organisation, regulated by Ofqual, and the Welsh Government[1]. They have a comprehensive portfolio of over 650 Ofqual regulated qualifications on the national Qualifications and Credit framework (QCF). It has a long-established reputation for developing and awarding high quality vocational qualifications across a wide range of industries. As a registered charity, ABC Awards combines 180 years of examination and assessment expertise but also implements a responsive, flexible and innovative approach to the needs of our customers.

Renowned for excellent customer service, and quality standards, ABC Awards also offers over 600 Ofqual regulated qualifications for all ages and abilities post-14; all are developed with the support of relevant stakeholders to ensure that they meet the needs and standards of employers across the UK.

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
