We are delighted to be able to announce that Focus Awards has been approved to offer regulated qualifications in several additional subject matter and sector areas.
Following a lengthy application process, which included the submission of a comprehensive business case, and the entire Senior Management Team (SMT) travelling to Ofqual’s headquarters in Coventry for direct scrutiny and examination, we have just received news of the approval.
Between us we have significant expertise in many other areas beyond the somewhat limiting Sports, Leisure and Recreation we were initially approved for. It therefore made absolute sense to make representation for the additional approval in order to be able to bring that knowledge and skill to bear on those additional sector areas for the benefit of our Centres.
We have been beavering away over the last few months to prepare for this momentous event, and as a result have a number of new qualifications "ready to go" in Health and Social Care, Teaching and Learning, Business and Administration, Childcare and Preparation for Work. Watch this space….
