Delivering Performance Standards

By providing objective, measurable outcomes, our specifications can be used for many HR purposes including:

  • career management
  • succession planning

We have been at the forefront of the Qualifications & Curriculum Authority's (QCA) test and trials project to develop the new Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) that is being phased in to replace the current system by January 2011. We have developed several suites of units of assessment and qualifications rules of combination that are compliant with the new QCF. These include suites of QCF units and rules of combination in Defence Engineering, Heavy Weapons, Armoured Fighting Vehicle Gunnery, Survival Equipment, Relief Operations, the Movement of Explosives, Defence Range Safety and Public Service.
