We work in partnership with TQUK to offer our learners a range of vocational qualifications under the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). This is the way of recognising achievement through the awarding of credits for qualifications and individual units.

Taking this approach provides a more flexible route to gaining qualifications and enables you to progress in smaller steps through the accumulation of credit. 

TQUK is an Awarding Organisation recognised by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).
