Qualifications are valid for life. They differ from certifications in that they are controlled by international educational bodies, and only approved Education Centres can deliver the programs that lead to qualifications. Approved Education Centres must undergo annual auditing on each program they deliver. This ensures the quality of each program, and the delivery processes around it, continue to meet the educational body’s strict requirements. Qualifications are recognised across the world referenced by qualification equivalences.
Accreditations are awarded by the organisation who provides the training. These types of awards represent the level of training that has been attended by the individual and can add value to the individuals, employer and the wider industry.

Pearson BTEC Professional Qualifications offer a practical approach to learning, which is structured around real-life situations and can include both theoretical and practical learning. Learners undertake a number of units to allow them to demonstrate their skill and knowledge. They are available in varying levels – from the entry level Award, advancing to a Certificate and the highest being a Diploma.
Learners can build their own qualification portfolio over time to grow in line with their careers.
