10 TQUK qualifications listed in Lifetime Skills Guarantee programme

Nearly 400 level 3 courses will be available for learners to study for free from April 2021 as part of the government’s plan to get those affected by redundancy during the COVID-19 pandemic back to work.  

The Lifetime Skills Guarantee programme was announced by the Prime Minister in September and the qualifications that are a part of it, including 10 of ours, are all fully funded to adult learners who do not currently hold a full qualification at level 3 or equivalent.  

The full list of 379 can be viewed here, and we’re delighted to list our qualifications below. Click each link to view the qualification specification 

The TQUK Level 3 Certificate in Understanding Substance Misuse (RQF) and the TQUK Level 3 Certificate in Understanding Autism (RQF) are available with a full range of online resources from our friends at The Skills Network 

Our Managing Director, Andrew Walker, sees this as a crucial step for the country and its workforce: “We here at TQUK are always looking for ways to make a positive impact with our work, so it’s great to see ten of our qualifications listed in the government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee programme. 

“The qualifications listed here, both from ourselves and our fellow Awarding Organisations, will provide tangible opportunities for those affected by job losses during the pandemic, opening up new pathways and helping them reboot or relaunch their careers.” 

If you’d like to learn more about how to offer any of the TQUK qualifications that are a part of Lifetime Skills Guarantee or ask any questions about the programme itself, please get in touch with us at business.development@tquk.org

We’re here for you during these turbulent times

Following the Prime Minister’s address on Saturday, I wanted to drop you a line to let you know how we’ll continue to support you during this potentially turbulent period.

Our service to you is our top priority. This is a difficult and uncertain time, but we’ve got your back every step of the way. If you have any questions or concerns, just get in touch and we’ll steer you in the right direction as best we can.

The industry is responding rapidly and so are we. We’re attending conferences and sector forums to understand the latest developments and are working with our regulators for changes that will help you and your learners keep moving forwards. We’ll pass all key information through to you as and when we have it.

Since the first lockdown ended, we’ve been providing adaptations to our regulated qualifications in line with Ofqual’s Extraordinary Regulatory Framework. We’re on the seventh version at the moment and will continue to update it as necessary and send to you via email.

If you’re concerned about certificate delivery, we’re still issuing e-certificates as standard, so no certs will be delayed by offices being shut. You can find out more about e-certs on our blog or by watching the recording of a webinar we gave in September.

Finally, we’ve updated our Coronavirus FAQ page to ensure it features the most current information we have. You can find the page here.

We’re here for you whatever you need us for, and together we’ll overcome whatever challenges the pandemic throws at us.

King regards,
Andrew Walker
