Qualification Titles

What do qualification titles mean?

The title of a qualification indicates its difficulty, how long it will take the average learner to complete it, and its general content. It will also tell you which awarding organisation awarded the qualification and if the qualification is listed on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).

Example 1

If you have been awarded the Open College Network West Midlands Level 1 Award in Induction to College (RQF) qualification, this means that:

  • The qualification was awarded by Open College Network West Midlands
  • You achieved at Level 1
  • You achieved between 1 and 12 credits (in this case 3)
  • The subject of the qualification was induction to college
  • It is a RQF qualification.

Example 2

If you have been awarded a Open College Network West Midlands Level 2 Certificate in Horticulture (RQF) qualification, this means that:

  • The qualification was awarded by Open College Network West Midlands
  • You achieved at Level 2 (the same level as GCSEs)
  • You achieved between 13 and 36 credits (in this case 17)
  • The subject you studied was horticulture
  • It is a RQF qualification.
