We recommend you spend approximately 110 hours of your time studying for the NCFE Level 3 Child Psychology Award. The pace of study is completely up to you. To give an example, if you dedicate 2 hours a week to the course it would take you a year to complete but if you could spare 4 hours a week you could complete it in six months.
