Apologies to everyone for the delay in getting the new website live but we’re back now.

There are quite a few changes this time and we’ve been struggling to get all the new information ready for you. If you can’t find what you need please email or phone us.

The following is a summary of the main changes:

Lantra & NPTC
Lantra have now become Lantra Awards again and are going “head to head” with NPTC who are now “City & Guilds NPTC”. The result is that both are now offering both Integrated Training & Assessment (ITA) courses and separately assessed courses.

Both awarding bodies are now shifting to the Qualifications and Credit Framework “QCF” system, aiming at mainly Level 2 and 3 Qualifications. Although this has resulted in a huge increase in paperwork that needs to be done during every training session, it does offer the benefit of giving new options of combined certificates or “Awards” for those who undertake several
courses. As always there are a few problems with the new paperwork and systems but this will soon settle down as reviews are being held and changes made.
