        Why Vocational Qualifications?

        Flexible Delivery

        Practical, industry relevant and flexible. The flexibility of delivery is designed to allow you to build the perfect qualification for you and your learners, whilst retaining structure through selected core and optional units – many of which can be taught remotely if necessary.

        Practical Skills

        Assessment is based around practical and/or technical skills, and knowledge applicable to roles in the relevant qualification’s industry. Generally, there are no set works or repertoire restrictions allowing your learners to study what they are actually interested in, generating greater engagement.

        Dedicated Support

        Each delivery centre is allocated a dedicated External Quality Assurer (EQA) - they will support the centre throughout delivery, approving assessment & IV plans, assignment briefs, and externally verifying samples of learner evidence prior to certification of the qualification.
