Focus Awards Accredited QCF
The course is accredited by Focus Awards, who are regulated by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) in England.The Qualifications and Credit Framework is a system for recognising skills and qualifications at a national level by awarding credit for qualifications, and for smaller individual learning outcomes (or “units”), which can be “banked” to make up a larger or more inclusive accreditation. It is a very flexible system, which allows learners to gain qualifications at their own pace, and through routes such as distance learning which suit their own personal circumstances. QCF enables courses, qualifications and accreditation obtained by students in a wide variety of subject areas to be effectively “benchmarked” or measured against diverse and otherwise unrelated subjects according to difficulty and quantity of study time required. In this way, achievements can be recognised and rewarded through the award of credits and qualifications at a nationally recognised level, regardless of the subject matter studied.
The Qualifications and Credit Framework provides a mechanism for individual units, which can be thought of as the building blocks of all qualifications, to be aggregated and combined into a formal, nationally recognised certification scheme. The units are accrued in a centralised databank and then “released” at predetermined levels to deliver a qualification to the student.
