Healthcare is an essential service and a treasured aspect of human life. There are talented doctors, caring nurses, analytical counsellors, expert therapists, dedicated social workers, hard-working foot health practitioners, and many other carers that all, thankfully, see healthcare as more than just a job. They offer their time and their expertise to improve the quality of our lives.

The Regulated Qualifications Framework is an Ofqual initiated scheme, a nationwide recognized accreditation. The RQF scheme was put in place by the government to encompass and replace the more traditional training standards such as the NVQs, and later QCFs. By choosing to study an RQF you will have a qualification that carries meaning and recognition to future employers.

Most of our lifestyle courses are ABC accredited. ABC Awards is a leading national awarding body, offering Ofqual-regulated qualifications. With a comprehensive portfolio of qualifications in topics ranging from animal care to yoga teaching, you can be sure to find one that suits your interest.
