AlphaPlus - Supporting awarding organisations

Vocational Qualifications development services

Vocational Qualification Development

Qualification development is a core activity for most AOs, and modern vocational qualifications are being held up to new areas of scrutiny – for example in the use of grading and the associated challenges of marking and standard setting.

AlphaPlus has extensive experience in qualification design and development across a wide range of vocational disciplines. We can help you at every stage of the process, from structural design through to unit writing, accreditation support, and assessment design.

We don’t claim to have all the answers, and we know that AOs have considerable skills in-house. However, we are able to draw on broad experience in the UK and overseas, to help you consider the widest range of options when deciding on your approach, as well as providing guidance on the strengths and weaknesses of these options. AlphaPlus have provided qualification development services to a large number of UK and international awarding organisations, although we can’t name them here as most of our work is confidential.

Although the activities we undertake vary from one project to the next, the Vocational Qualification Services page presents some examples of the services we provide.
