Can anyone give me some clarity on what a substantial qualification is for a study programme? Can it only be one qualification or can it be made up of two qualifications or even 1 qualification and some units from another?
I seen a webinar with Nick Linford and he seemed to suggest it could be made up of more than one, but I can’t find guidance on this at all.
The substantial part of a learners study should be based on the aim of the study programme be it Academic, Vocational or Job focused and is no different to what is currently being delivered by the FE and Training sector.
For Academic it could be ‘A level’, vocational a ‘national diploma’ and for job focused ‘work experience’ these are examples of the main component of the study programme which could have supplementary aims or activity as appropriate to what the learner needs.
