What qualifications do I need?

This Level 4 qualification is available to anyone employed in an appropriate job role either as an existing or newly recruited member of staff.

As the main qualification is at Level 4 the learner needs to demonstrate a good standard of academic ability. All learners will be required to sit an assessment to assess their functional skills and their ability to complete the course.


The process of assessment requires the demonstration of skills together with appropriate knowledge and understanding to a specified standard. Assessment of competency is based on a combination of observation, questioning and collection of evidence from the workplace. The knowledge is delivered in a flexible way and there is minimal attendance at college. However, attendance may be required to complete functional skills if not already attained.
