QCF qualifications

About QCF qualifications

Trainingsmith is a provider of ProTrainings courses. These courses are designed to meet the requirements of the Ofqual Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) and many are available as a QCF course certified through Future Awards and Qualifications. To obtain a QCF certificate for your course, you will be required to complete the practical required elements and examination, which are available from Trainingsmith. This may incur a small additional certification fee (approx £15), which varies dependent on the course you are taking.


QCF qualifications are not required in all cases. They may attract funding and enable the student to gain QCF credits, which can be used towards other qualifications.


What is QCF?

The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) is the framework for creating and accrediting qualifications in England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Vocational qualifications on the Qualifications and Credit Framework are, work-related qualifications. They are designed to allow you to learn in a way that suits you, and give you the skills that employers are looking for. There are already lots to choose from, in a wide range of subjects. The QCF sorts qualifications into a number of "levels" that place different demands on you as a learner.
