The OU also allow you to use tesco clubcard points to pay for some courses (this one included) 

The problem i found when looking for courses/certification is that most of it is almost always outdated or unrecognised. Comptia Linux+ for example has sample questions, one of which asked what the default X server for linux desktops is: the answer they give is Xfree86, which due to licensing issues was forked to X.org around 2004, so their material is about 7 years out of date.

The only certifications i personally would trust is the LPI qualifications. Having said that, LPI-1 can be passed by anyone with minimal linux admin experience, so you would need at least LPI-2 to prove your worth.

The OU do a Linux course, the course code is T155 I believe... here a
link http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/course/t155.htm its not
cheap but then I think you get discount to take the CompTIA Linux+ exam
at the end of the course.

might be worth a look.
