Written by bruno on . Posted in Training / Tutoring / Coaching / Mentoring

These qualifications help to improve standards of practice for those working in training and development, they include a range of 'mini qualifications' to boost special skills and knowledge. These qualifications are for people working in, or looking to enter roles in learning and development. They have been developed to replace the Learning and Development NVQs. The units and qualifications will provide people who carry out learning and development roles in their organisation with the opportunity to develop and improve their practice as well as achieving a professional qualification for the role. They are available to anyone working in accredited learning, non-accredited learning (where people may train and assess skills but do not assess for a qualification), the Qualification on the National Qualification Framework (NQF) and the Qualifications on the Qualification Credit Framework (QCF). Learners can also go on to take one of City & Guilds' suite of Assessment and Internal Quality Assurance qualifications
