Vocational Qualifications

Our Vocational Qualifications (VQs) are evidence-based qualifications that you complete in the workplace. There are no exams, only assignments which are evidenced through your job. Completing a VQ with The Open University means you can continue earning while you learn, in a way that suits you. 

You will need to be working in a job role, secondment or a voluntary work placement that will allow you to gather the required work-based evidence.
