To deliver these qualifications, you will need suitably qualified staff to carry out training and assessment.
You will also need suitable facilities to carry out the required training to enable learners to achieve industry standards.
There are two ways of entering candidates for assessment:
Candidates can enter for examinations if they are taking or have already finished a course at a school, college or similar training institution that has directed their preparation, whether by going to a training centre, working with another institution, or by open learning methods.
These are candidates who have not finished a programme as described above. The examination centres must receive their application for entry well before the date of the examination concerned. This allows them to act on any advice you give about assessment arrangements or any further preparation needed.
External candidates must carry out practical assignments and projects if necessary, and they will need extra time and guidance to make sure that they meet all the requirements for this part of the assessment.
If there are no facilities for realistic practical work, we strongly recommend that you develop links with local industry to provide opportunities for hands-on experience.
