Continually working towards maintaining a high standard of quality

The Skills Network is continually working towards maintaining a high standard of quality.

In order for us to achieve and maintain Direct Claim Status (DCS) for all of our qualifications we are visited by the Awarding Bodies External Moderators where they sample some of our learner portfolios. We have already held several of these visits in this academic year but have recently held our fourth of 2016. We successfully maintained our DCS for the following qualification:

  • NCFE Level 2 in Occupational Health and Safety

As well as having our first successful visit for the following two qualifications:

  • NCFE Level 2 in the Principles of Team Leading
  • NCFE Level 2 in the Principles of Business Administration

DCS is important to us as this enables centres to sign off their own certificate claim form for each qualification. NCFE awards a centre with DCS for a new qualification if they have two successful visits with no actions. Once DCS is achieved, the centre is visited annually to ensure they continue to operate to the same high standard.

Our next visits are arranged for the beginning of April, when we will present the following qualifications:

  • Institute of Leadership and Management Level 3 in the Principles of Leadership and Management
  • NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Information, Advice and Guidance
  • NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Understanding Retail Operations
