Non-Contractual Obligations of the Seller-Producer (Byte Size Skills Course)

The purpose of this course is to consider in detail some of the legal obligations which are imposed on those who sell or produce goods and services. The aim is to build upon your knowledge of the contractual rules which are imposed on such persons and to demonstrate how these are reinforced by other provisions. It is also important that you can identify the correct set of rules to apply from a given set of facts.

We can separate these obligations into a number of different categories. These include:

  • liability to consumers imposed by Act of Parliament
  • liability to consumers imposed by the common law
  • rules governing those acting "negligently"
  • employers' liability for the actions of employees
  • health and safety at work.

By the time you have completed this course you will be able to:

  • distinguish between contractual and non-contractual remedies
  • identify the correct remedy to use when faced with a consumer problem
  • explain the principles of negligence
  • explain the purpose of the Health and Safety at Work Act and explain the legal duties of the employer and employee
  • identify situations in which an employer is made legally responsible for the actions of an employee
  • explain the rules governing the tort of nuisance
  • list other environmental protection laws
  • apply legal principles to business based problems and suggest possible outcomes.

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

Certificate 1 is issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges: Non-Contractual Obligations of the Seller-Producer (Byte Size Skills Course) Certificate

At the end of this course successful learners will be given the option to receive a Certificate of Achievement from the Quality Licence Scheme and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 1 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.
