AMSPAR and City & Guilds

AMSPAR works with City & Guilds to provide a range of nationally recognised qualifications suitable for delivery as either full or part time study programmes. AMSPAR qualifications at Levels 2 and 3 are included in the 14 - 19 Diploma as additional / specialised learning.

There are over 100 recognised Awarding Bodies in the UK. These take the form of Examination Boards or Professional Bodies. Each set examinations or standards for their qualifications. This is carried out in consultation with the relevant Sector Skills Council and employ the use of National Occupational Standards.

In addition to this AMSPAR qualifications are mapped to the NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework.

To ensure that the qualifications are fit for purpose the awarding body submits their qualifications to the regulators such as Ofqual. If successful the qualification will be admitted to the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) / Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). Listing in the NQF / QCF means that the qualification is eligible for public funding.
