Vocational qualifications are a great way to ensure that the skills and knowledge you demonstrate in your job meet national industry standards.
Organisations can use them to set standards expected of staff in a particular sector; achieve quality and consistency; recognise staff competence; and provide a framework for preparing job descriptions, undertaking appraisals and planning training and development activities. Vocational Qualifications are also very flexible for staff with heavy or unpredictable workloads. They can be very effective and flexible tools for motivating employees and enhancing standards and practice.
Here, at The Open University Vocational Qualification Assessment Centre (VQAC), we can deliver these qualifications through a flexible, distance-learning, modular approach. In most cases, an assessor will work with the learner providing support and guidance as they progress through the qualification.
