For some individuals, this qualification can provide useful recognition of their professional competence to aid their step from one job role to another, e.g. moving into supervisory and/or management roles. For others, it could prepare them for progression to further learning and training.


Learners will demonstrate their occupational competence, skills and knowledge by collecting evidence of their work.
