Tipton Training’s Level 7 Diplomas
Having trained dentists in the UK and Internationally for over 30 years, we have an appreciation of how good quality education can improve the quality of treatments delivered to patients, and thus improve the job satisfaction of dentists. Over the years, we have seen our Alumni grow and prosper. Today we have successfully transformed the careers of over 4,000 alumni and this number continues to rise year after year. This alone has strengthened the belief in our courses and makes us even more determined in delivering high quality dental education.
Dentistry is an ever-changing profession. With this in mind, we are always developing our courses to ensure we are delivering a course with the latest scientific research and clinical skills. Our knowledgeable and well-respected faculty ensure that our delegates receive the most advanced and up to date education available.
All of Tipton Training Academy courses are Level 7 qualifications, accredited by EduQual, the UK government’s appointed education body.
What is a Level 7 Course?
As a forefront figure in dental education, and a responsible training organisation, we made the deliberate decision in 2016, guided by the best interests of our delegates, to go above and beyond by establishing our courses to be Level 7 Vocational Qualifications. A Level 7 course is a master’s level course and attaining such qualification allows you to put the post nominals after your name, but only if Level 7!
To gain this accreditation, we went through an extensive approval process with EduQual, an established UK Awarding body offering a range of qualifications that have been credit-rated for the SCQF by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). We were the first private dental training institution to achieve this level of accreditation in 2017.
Whilst the dental industry has several private training organisations offering Level 7 Certificates & Level 7 Diplomas, the vast majority are not accredited by established UK awarding bodies.
It is due to this independent review and quality assurance that delegates can rest assured that they are getting the best quality education and Enhanced CPD’s on our courses. We can guarantee credibility, qualification status and value for our delegates.
About Our Level 7 Diplomas
Tipton Training’s Level 7 Diplomas are essentially comparable to completing the education associated with 2 or more of our Level 7 Certificates. By opting to complete a Level 7 Diploma, you can reap the benefits of two or more courses alongside each other and complete them within a substantially shorter duration.
While the commitment to a Level 7 Diploma demands more investment of time per month, the benefits of heightened confidence and the ability to deliver superior quality treatments means delegates can appreciate these inherent advantages sooner in their professional journey. Plus, by enrolling in a Diploma programme upfront, you can enjoy significant financial savings through reduced fees.
A Level 7 Diploma course has multiple units (usually 10 to 12) and can be completed in a standard duration within approximately 12 or 18 months, or, as an extended course completed within approximately 24 to 36 months. This depends on when you wish to commence each course stream. Each unit has specific learning outcomes which are assessed regularly through multiple choice questionnaires, reflective write-ups and structured feedback on hands-on work.
Upon completion of a Level 7 Diploma and the assessments involved, delegates will receive a Level 7 Diploma awarded by EduQual and accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England. The learning outcomes will also be evidenced by a transcript including the units covered and the credits awarded for each unit.
