What are the benefits of a professional qualification with City & Guilds?
What kind of qualification can I get?
You can work towards any of the following:
When you enrol, you’ll be registered as a City & Guilds learner for three years. That means you have three years to complete your chosen qualification. Where you start will depend on the skills you already have. You can stop at any time, or build on the qualifications you’ve taken. An Award will count towards a Certificate, and a Certificate will count towards a Diploma. This flexibility allows you to work at a pace that suits you.
Do I have to sit an exam?
You have to sit exams for all Level 2 and 3 qualifications. These will be held in an exam environment. At Level 2, the exams are multiple-choice questions. At Level 3, the exams are short answer tests.
Once you’ve finished studying for a unit, you need to discuss what you’ve learnt with your Line Manager. They’ll decide whether you’re ready to sit the exam. Your Line Manager will then get in touch with Premier Partnership to book your exam.
Levels 4 and 5 qualifications are assignment based. Once you’ve enrolled, you can log into the Premier Partnership site https://cap.premierpartnership.co.uk/moodle/login/index.php to see what you need to complete.
