About Vocational QualificationsA key part of these courses will be the learner demonstrating that they are competent in the workplace by proving that they can do certain work-related tasks. Assessment is by way of portfolio, where candidates build up evidence of the work they have done, for example, work products, exercises and assignments and by observation, where an assessor watches them work and checks they can do the work-related task.
These qualifications are linked to the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) ensuring that they are regulated and recognised across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Having a Nationally Recognised Qualification on your CV is a great way to prove that you have the work-related skills you need for the job.
