Bespoke Qualifications

In addition to the regulated qualifications already available, we can also help the colleges, training providers and employers we work with the develop bespoke programmes and qualifications to suit their particular needs.

Bespoke Qualifications

Bespoke qualifications can be of any level, any duration and will be regulated by Ofqual.

Most recently we have worked with Savile Row to develop a bespoke tailoring qualification to meet their demand for high-level apprentices.

The Level 5 Diploma in Bespoke Tailoring has been specifically developed with the Savile Row Bespoke Association and Creative Skillset to be used as the demonstrative element of the new Level 5 Apprenticeship Standards for Bespoke Cutters and Tailors.

As the qualification is regulated by Ofqual it can also be used as a standalone qualification for learners wanting to gain the knowledge and skills needed at Level 5 without completing an apprenticeship, making it a flexible option for employers, colleges and training providers.

If you are looking to develop a bespoke qualification, our expert team will support you every step of the way, from an initial consultation through to writing the qualification.

Bespoke Programmes

If you are looking for support in designing a bespoke programme, we can help you to develop a niche package please contact us for further information.

We have worked with Estee Lauder Companies UK and Ireland in collaboration with the Fashion Retail Academy to develop a tailored Retail Management Programme for the cosmetics industry.

The programme combines training in marketing intelligence, consumer behaviour, retail space management, leadership skills and crisis management to help Beauty Managers to respond to a multi-touch point consumer environment.

Non-regulated Programmes

If you are already providing your own high-quality training and are looking for an awarding organisation to recognise the high quality of your provision, we offer a Quality Licence Scheme designed just for you.

The scheme gives you the freedom to develop courses which meet your needs and we will support you with an annual audit conducted by a specialist who will provide you with feedback and can help you find areas for improvement.

We work with more than 30 Providers, including distance learning providers and employers and offer an open and transparent pricing model to help you get started.
