Developing Qualifications

We work in collaboration with industry and stakeholders to develop qualifications that are fit for purpose and fit for the future supporting the development of knowledge, skills and competencies required by individuals working within the fire safety industry.

Our team of experienced developers bring together expertise from across industry to ensure that our qualifications are rigorous, valid, reliable and consistent in their approach whilst providing flexible delivery and assessment mechanisms to support their application in multiple contexts.

Prior to developing a FireQual qualification we identify potential opportunities through consultation to prove both need and demand.

Following the development of a justifiable and robust business case, we constitute development groups bringing together relevant knowledge and expertise to drive forward the development process of both the qualification standards and associated assessments.

Throughout the development process we complete fair access and equal opportunities checkers making sure that, where not precluded by a legislative or regulatory requirement, our qualifications can be undertaken by all who are able to demonstrate their knowledge and skills to the level required.

It does not stop with the launch of qualifications, we continue to check they meet their intended need and bring a positive impact to the fire safety industry.

Following a collaborative approach maintaining regular communication with industry, we are able to listen to industry needs and provide high quality knowledge and skills development solutions.

Gone are the days that Awarding Bodies dictate to industry, it is time that industry drives forward innovation and Awarding Bodies help to facilitate and meet those needs.
