Bespoke

Focus Awards also endorses non-regulated qualifications that meet the needs and requirements of learners.

After the approved centre’s application, the awarding body reviews its management systems and internal quality assurance arrangements to ensure that the centre has robust systems in place to develop its own qualifications and materials, together with appropriately qualified staff to assess and quality assure your provision.
