We are a small business located in Cramlington Northumberland who offer informal acknowledgement for autodidact learning we have been running since 2006. 

Autodidact means you will conduct your own research and use existing learning to prepare your dissertation, we do not provide learning manuals. We will provide assessment and a PCAc certificate which will be sent through the postal system and arrive at your door.

Our PCAc certificates contain the name of the autodidact learner, the knowledge they have expressed and laminated with a hologram in the bottom right corner.

Our courses are designed for autodidact learners who have the ability to conduct their own research and write an authoritative dissertation regarding their chosen subject.  We acknowledge your learning with our own in-house PCAc awards. 

PCAc awards are used to express an awareness of ethics and to compliment your existing intellectual pursuits. Each PCAc certificate displays our website to assist interested parties to verify the documents value and suitable application.  

We use our own ethical principles as a guide and require that you express that your conduct be in harmony with these principles when in practice.  

In order to obtain a PCAc award you are required to submit a detailed dissertation based on existing knowledge.

Become a Contributor of Philosophy phC 

If requested, your dissertation can be made available for other learners to read. 

 When allowing your work to be read by other learners you will be acknowledged as a phC (Contributor of Philosophy) and receive this certificate in addition to your PCAc.

PCAc awards are achieved by intellectual thinkers who are able to study without external guidance. We find that university graduates choose our PCAc awards as a means of continued personal development and for the challenge and satisfaction of writing an approved dissertation.

PCAc awards are designed for the autodidact. You will  find these awards valuable in demonstrating that you are committed to personal development.
