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.
Advice NI is a leading provider of vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland offering the following nationally accredited qualifications: If you are interested in any of these qualifications, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can confirm if they are available for individuals, or as a bespoke service for a group of learners working in the area of their chosen qualification.

Advice NI's Approach to Vocational Qualifications
Advice NI’s vocational qualifications are accredited through City and Guilds and/or ProQual awarding bodies. We provide flexible learning packages through our online learning programme offering on-line, blended and distance learning approaches.
Learners can enrol on most qualifications at any time as we operate a roll-on-roll-off programme. There are no entry requirements for these vocational qualifications, but learners MUST be working in a sector relevant to the qualification they wish to pursue, and be performing tasks relevant to the level of the qualification.
Advice NI vocational qualifications were the winner of the prestigious AONTAS Star award in 2009, have been both highly commended and commended in the UK E-Wellbeing Awards, and shortlisted for a 2014 Aontas Star Award.
Advice NI has currently paused it’s rolling registration for both the NVQ Level 3 Certificate and Level 4 Diploma in Advice and Guidance whilst course content is reviewed and updated. If you are interested in either of these qualifications, please contact email@example.com to discuss your eligibility for these courses, and we can follow up with you when registration for the revised courses begins.
