Need for Nationally Recognised Qualifications

By Qualification Network Subscribe to RSS | December 20th 2011 | Views:

Education is the prerogative of every individual. A professional degree convinces a future employer of a person’s capability of performing the task he has been chosen to do. The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation or Ofqual is a government organization which monitors and regulates exams, tests, and qualifications in England. Ofqual through nationally recognised awarding bodies ensures that educational standards are maintained and students get the qualifications they deserve along with recognition of the value of that qualification. A qualification which is accredited by Ofqual is given its due worth by employers globally.

Awarding Bodies in the UK

Nationally recognised awarding bodies in the UK have the right to accredit qualifications so that they are recognised by universities and employers. These Ofqual recognised awarding bodies do not necessarily teach the courses that provides the qualification. They associate themselves with independent training institutions. These training centers have to meet specific stringent criteria in order to be accredited. There are qualifications ranging from Level 1 to 9. A Level Five qualification is equivalent to a Bachelors degree and a Level Eight is equal to a Doctorate degree. All courses have to be accredited by the National Qualifications Framework to be eligible to receive state funding. Qualifications accredited by NQF are of the highest quality and meets the needs of students and prospective employers too.

Accreditation for Training Centers

For qualification development and qualification accreditation, a training centre has to be associated with awarding bodies. The training offered by independent organizations or work centers carries greater value when there is accreditation from an awarding body. QCF or Qualifications and Credit Framework is part of Ofqual and assist in recognizing qualifications and skills. A student gets credit for each unit of learning that he completes. This allows learners to gain qualifications according to their capabilities.

Recognised Qualifications through the QCF

The QCF recognizes the Certification in Personal Effectiveness which helps in the all round development of a person and his ability to deal with situations and people with personal initiative and confidence. The Level 2 Award in Emergency First Aid at Work qualifies a person to deal with an emergency in the work place including the legal requirements and basic first aid equipment. A candidate with this qualification will be able to deal with cardiopulmonary resuscitation, choking, and shock. The Level 2 Award in Paediatric First Aid is necessary for all personnel dealing with children in schools, crèches, and playgroups.
