Open Awards Independent Living Suite Just Got Better!

Open Awards Independent Living Suite - What Are The Changes?

Throughout 2017, the Open Awards team have been reviewing all qualifications as part of the qualification framework transfer from QCF to RQF.

We have taken this opportunity to talk with providers who are currently delivering the Independent Living suite to ensure that the content is up to date and that it still suits learners' needs.

As a result of this review, a few changes have been made to this suite.

Previously there were...

  • 6 Awards available at Entry 1, 2 and 3 (Leisure Activities, Personal Care, Rights and Responsibilities, Personal Development, Accessing Community Facilities and Household Skills.)
  • 2 Certificates available at Entry 1, 2 and 3 (Looking After Yourself and Your Home and Living in the Community)
  • 1 Diploma available at Entry 1, 2 and 3 (Independent Living)

 Now there are ...

  • 2 Awards available at Entry 1, 2 and 3  -(Looking After Yourself and Your Home and Living in the Community)
  • 2 Certificates available at Entry 1, 2 and 3 -(Looking After Yourself and Your Home and Living in the Community)
  • 1 Diploma available at Entry 1, 2 and 3 (Independent Living)

All qualifications have been reviewed and updated but only the Awards have had changes in terms of structure. You told us that these are extremely valuable qualifications for your learners so we have not lost any content.

 

The suite structure now looks like the following:
