Brief History

Based within the Enterprise Centre at the University of Hull, Kandu Education Limited specialise in the development of systems which enable effective learning outside of the traditional classroom, we gained our status as an Edexcel Approved Training Provider in 2002.

During this time we have designed and developed the syllabus, course material and assessment methods for a number of approved programmes from Levels 2 to 4.

Quality Assurance

As an approved training provider we are subjected to yearly external verification by the awarding body.

Our delivery methods, candidate support and assessment methods must maintain high standards otherwise our approved status would be removed

Unique Approach

We strongly believe in practical learning. Something which is often difficult to achieve over distance. Our IT courses are uniquely designed to encourage practical work. This creates real world problems which must be approached logically as they would in the workplace.

Our experienced tutors guide you through each step until the process becomes second nature, such results are almost impossible to achieve from simply reading books/watching videos.

Adaptive Assessment

Our flexible assessment methods mean that you may be able to cover many of the learning outcomes as part of your current employment. It is often possible to produce the required evidence whilst completing your everyday tasks.
