Why Vocational Qualifications
Vocational qualifications link to particular employment sectors and are becoming increasingly important to the economy to ensure that it develops the right skills for future employment.
Vocational Qualifications can be a cost effective part of your workplace development strategy as they aim to improve the productivity, effectiveness and job satisfaction levels of employees whilst supporting them to work towards a nationally recognised qualification on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). They are a great way to ensure that the skills and knowledge demonstrated by your workforce meet sector specific standards.
Guiding your employees to choose the qualifications and units most suitable to their job roles will allow you to maximise the benefits you get from your investment in the learning and development of your workforce.
