Vocational Qualifications: Children and Young People

Offer and Charges:

In order to provide high quality support, whether this be with information, advice and guidance or with education and training the workforce must be able to develop the skills and knowledge they need.  Learning and development should focus on the practical skills workers need to do their job and also instill in them the values they need to put at the heart of their practice.  Vocational qualifications enable learners to develop and demonstrate those skills throughout the learner journey.

We offer competitive rates for the qualifications we deliver and can support you and your employees to gain appropriate qualifications. 

Career Guidance/Learner Journey

The Information, Advice and Guidance vocational qualifications are designed to provide learners with the skills and knowledge needed to manage the delivery of information, advice and guidance in both face to face and remote situations within a range of services, including giving careers guidance.  The method of delivery we offer is flexible allowing you to complete full qualifications or specific units to support continual professional development (CPD).

Whereas, the Education and Training vocational qualification is designed to provide learners with the skills and knowledge needed to deliver education and training courses to groups or on a 1-1 basis. The method of delivery we offer is flexible and delivered on a regular basis within group cohorts undertaking the three mandatory units as well as participating in a micro-teach session.  

Our related training courses can support the underpinning knowledge within the range of vocational qualifications offered and can be found on the Learning and Development: Children page.

Quality

The Cambridgeshire County Council (CFA) Assessment Centre is regularly quality monitored by the awarding organisations whose qualifications we offer and you can be confident in the integrity and quality of both the qualifications and out delivery teams.  We also self assess through learner and employer feedback to ensure we continually improve the learner experience.
