Discontinued Qualifications

As the demands of employers, industry and Higher Education Institutions change, we must improve and update our qualifications and discontinue those that are no longer fit for purpose.

We also respond to any policy or regulatory changes that impact our qualifications’ placement on national frameworks.

By doing so, we aim to ensure that our offer consists of qualifications that meet and exceed today’s industry standards and regulatory requirements.

Due to this review we have allowed certain qualifications to end. Please see below for a list of sectors for qualifications that are affected by these changes.
