QCF/NVQ Training for Staff





Our Training Centre opened in October 2002 and is situated within Addington School.


We have been part of the National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) training programme……… now known as Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) since it began in 1994.


The Centre is proud of its high standard, reputation and continuing success rate.


The Awarding Body we represent is ‘Council for the Awards in Care Health & Education’ (CACHE)


Our training Centre offers a range of appropriate QCF qualifications at different levels to allow staff to realise their potential and create greater job satisfaction.


The qualifications are nationally recognised and can progress onto related career paths.


We believe that our support staff enriches the experiences of the children in our school through the crucial role they play and that their positions should be rewarded.


The QCF qualification suite that we deliver is designed to provide a qualification applicable to Teacher Assistants and Support Staff who are working in our school and who’s working role calls for competence across a varied range of responsibilities. It is also designed to provide progression routes to level 4 qualifications e.g. foundation degree or follow a career path into teaching.
