How can I find out the cost of a qualification?
All qualification costs for our Recognised Centres are detailed on our qualification specific pages.
Do you have resources? Where can I access them?
Resources are available for specific qualifications only and can be accessed by logging into Quartzweb.
Where are the unit specifications for each qualification?
Unit specifications are contained within the Qualification Specification document (previously called Qualification Guide) on the right-hand side of each qualification specific page.
Do you offer non-regulated provision?
Yes we do.
Our Customised Accreditation is a bespoke offer to organisations who do not require a regulated qualification but do want to deliver training programmes to nationally recognised standards.
We also offer a Quality Endorsement Licence scheme that can provide national recognition for your training provision, whilst enabling your learners to gain certificates of recognition for completion of their training.
I have an idea for a new qualification – can I work with you to develop it?
Yes, of course. We are always happy to work with new organisations to develop any new ideas that they want to bring to life.
I don’t want to offer your qualifications, just have my own training recognised by you, is this something you can do?
Yes of course. Our Quality Endorsement Licence scheme can provide national recognition for your training provision, whilst enabling your learners to gain certificates of recognition for completion of their training.
We don’t have any Internal Quality Advisors employed, can you help us with that?
Unfortunately not. It is the responsibility of the Centre to ensure they employ the right personnel within their organisation to perform this role.
