On successfully completing this course you will receive two Certificates.

The first certificate is a Diploma awarded by the Blackford Centre.

The second is a Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards, our accreditation body.

This course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme.

This means that The Blackford Centre has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers meet certain quality criteria.

The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification, but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector.

To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by The Blackford Centre to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements, which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications.

ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

ABC Awards is a leading national Awarding Organisation, regulated by Ofqual and the Welsh Government. It has a long-established reputation for developing and awarding high quality vocational qualifications across a wide range of industries. As a registered charity, ABC Awards combines 180 years of examination and assessment expertise and implements a responsive, flexible and innovative approach to the needs of learners.
