Ninety five percent of classroom based learners with QA Associates undertake a formal accredited qualification as part of their training.
We use one of three Awarding Bodies to give us the most appropriate qualification choice for our clients and their learners. Qualifications will either be on the QCF (Qualifications Credit Framework) or on the BTEC Self Regulated Framework (SRF) as a customised qualification specifically designed by QA for our clients. A brief description of each of the Awarding Bodies is shown below:

The commitment to them requires a holistic approach to education. It begins by using research to understand what sort of learning works best, it continues by bringing together people and organisations to develop ideas, and it comes back round by measuring the outcomes of our products.
