SFJ Awards is able to provide a range of consultancy services to employers and training providers to support the delivery of qualifications in an efficient and effective manner that meets or exceeds customer expectations.

The following are examples of the cost-effective services we can offer:

Qualifications Development

We are experts in qualification development and we can guide and support you through the whole process. We have a track record of developing employer-led qualifications that equip individuals with the knowledge, skills and competences required for working in the public and private sectors.

Centre Support and Advice

If you are brand new to qualifications then becoming an Assessment Centre can be a daunting prospect. In addition to the free e-mail and telephone support we provide, SFJ Awards can provide one to one support and work with you to develop your practices, resources, policies and procedures and guide you through the centre approval process.

Assessment and Quality Assurance

Effective assessment is the cornerstone to qualifications and can reduce the cost and bureaucracy associated with qualifications. We can work with you to put in place high quality, pragmatic assessment practices and systems. We can support all stages of the assessment process including planning, implementing, recording and reviewing assessment. We can also help with establishing, reviewing and improving quality assurance procedures.

In addition, SFJ Awards offers workshops to support Learners and provide CPD for Assessors and Internal Quality Assurers (IQAs).

Assessment Instruments

We can develop suitable assessment instruments that support the assessment of specific qualifications. This may include the development of approaches for knowledge based qualifications (e.g. Multiple Choice Questions, scenario based questions) and competence based qualifications (e.g. evidence requirements). We can also assist with producing assessment guidance to support the delivery of qualifications.

Consultancy for other Awarding Organisations

If you are considering becoming an awarding organisation why not talk to us, we were the first awarding organisation to be recognised under the new Ofqual General Conditions of Recognition criteria and we are in a unique position to be able to use our experience to support you through the process.
