Find qualifications and resources

Following two years of trials by the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency (QCDA), the new Qualification & Credit Framework (QCF) has been approved.

It is a way for candidates to study credit-based units which suit their individual needs and maximising use of their talents in a subject area.

The new QCF sets out to create and accredit qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It aims to be accessible to a wide range of candidates within the vocational qualifications system.

Units and qualifications in the QCF are beneficial to all of its users as they are:

  • transferable
  • flexible
  • quality assured
  • easy to understand
  • geared towards progression
