Using Our Qualifications

A key feature of our qualifications is the flexibility and freedom they offer providers to tailor them to the specific needs of their learners.

We recognise that this flexibility can make it difficult for people who are new to our qualifications and so this page signposts you to a variety of ways in which our qualifications can be used and answer questions like:

  • How can I accredit careers education, citizenship and PSHEE in my school?
  • How can I engage hard to reach learners through a Summer School?
  • How do I put together a Traineeship?

They are by no means exhaustive, and if you have a unique way of using any of qualifications that you'd like share, we'd love to hear from you and feature you on our website - please contact us with details.

If you need more information about how to use any of our qualifications we'd be delighted to discuss your individual needs and help you find the right solution for your learners, do get in touch with your usual contact, or contact us through the website.
