PEYTU Qualification Centre
Welcome to PEYTU’s qualification centre. Our aim is to provide a quality service that will support you in gaining a qualification and provide you with the best learning experience. We maintain this by conforming to standards set by the awarding body CACHE; the centre requirements for SkillsActive, the sector council for Playwork and The Matrix Standard, for Information and Guidance. We also work closely with other partners to provide short courses for continuous professional development, some of which are endorsed and many of which will provide underpinning or extension of your knowledge.
What is the QCF?
The QCF recognises smaller steps of learning and enables learners to build up qualifications bit by bit. It helps learners achieve skills and qualifications that meet industry needs and enables work-based training to be nationally recognised.
Every unit and qualification in the QCF has a credit value that tells you how long it takes to complete — one credit represents 10 hours’ work. Each unit and qualification also has its own level, between Entry Level and Level 8, to show how difficult it is.
