In addition to gaining BSY qualifications, some courses also grant ABC Awards and Certa Awards* or OCN* certification of achievement. This indicates that the course measurable learning outcomes have been benchmarked at the appropriate Level using Ofqual’s Regulated Qualifications Framework level descriptors.
If you wish to start your own practice or expand your career then our level 3 and level 4 practitioner courses can help you achieve the skills and knowledge needed.
Level 3 qualifications recognise that you have gained the ability and, where relevant, are able to apply a range of knowledge, skills and understanding. This level is appropriate for people working in professional jobs and/or managing and developing others.
Level 4 qualifications recognise specialist learning and involve a higher level of information and knowledge in an area of work or study. This level is appropriate for people working independently, or in some areas, supervising and training others in their field of work.
If you would like a foundation qualification in a subject before studying a Practitioner level course then this level may suit. Or, if you are already a practitioner, courses at this level can help you gain additional skills/knowledge to expand your practice.
Personal Achievement level
If you wish to study a subject purely for personal enjoyment then you could take a course at this level. They may also act as a ‘taster’ of a subject before you decide on future study options.
