Online Resources on Vocational Qualification Changes Launched

New online resources to help employers and learners explore important changes to vocational qualifications and shape the content of future vocational qualifications have been launched. 

Business Link’s website now gives employers access to information on vocational qualifications and how to influence the changes as they take place. It provides links to help employers develop new courses and link up with other businesses in the sector to create business-focused training programmes.

For learners, the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills website has a new resource that provides the information and links needed to find out more about the changes.

Skills and Further Education Minister Kevin Brennan said: “Employers are now looking to put themselves in the best position to take up the opportunities of growth - skills will be crucial to taking on that challenge.

“That is why we are simplifying and modernising the system of vocational qualifications and I believe these changes will be invaluable to businesses and learners alike.”
