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 third of 2016. We successfully maintained our DCS for the following qualifications:

  • NCFE Level 2 in End of Life Care
  • NCFE Level 3 in End of Life Care
  • NCFE Level 2 in the Care and Management of Diabetes
  • NCFE Level 2 in the Safe Handling of Medication in Health and Social Care
  • NCFE Level 2 in the Prevention and Control of Infection in Health and Social Care
  • NCFE Level 2 in the Principles of Dementia Care
  • NCFE Level 2 in the Principles of Working with Individuals with Learning Disabilities
  • NCFE Level 2 in Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care
  • NCFE Level 2 in Common Health Conditions
  • NCFE Level 1 in Alcohol Awareness

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.

We are delighted to have maintained DCS for the courses mentioned above as well as gaining DCS for Common Health Conditions and Alcohol Awareness.

Our next visit is arranged for the 22nd and 23rd of March, when we will present our new versions of Customer Service Levels 2 and 3, Team Leading, Business Administration as well as Health and Safety, which we are looking forward to.
