About One Awards Bespoke Accreditation

One Awards Bespoke Accreditation

Bespoke Accreditation Leaflet

One Awards Bespoke Accreditation is aimed at providing additionality to your training programmes or, to provide accredited solutions if you can't find a regulated qualification that specifically meets the needs of your learners, customers or employers.

Examples of where Bespoke Accrediation is used:

  • supporting Local Initiatives and flexibilities such as the current Kickstart Scheme
  • Employer led staff training and CPD
  • Community and Family Learning
  • additionality to Study Programmes, Traineeships and Supported Internships.

For example, we are working with our centres to develop bespoke solutions to meet the requirements for 20% ‘off-the-job’ activities for Apprentices.

One Awards offers you the opportunity to accredit the tailor-made courses which you have developed to meet the specific needs of your customers and/or learners. This provides you with a truly bespoke, accredited course.

These are credit-based units of assessment which we develop with you and approve for your use. We work with you to write appropriate Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria1 or Performance Criteria2 (the unit), based on the content of your course.

Each unit is benchmarked to a level (Entry to Level 4 in England and Level 1 to Level 7 in Scotland) and assigned a One Awards credit value 1 or credit point 2 – this is the time taken by learners, on average, to meet the requirements of the learning outcomes of the unit.

One Awards’ Accredited units are written and quality assured to be comparable with the national standards for credit based units of assessment.3
