2021 is our 25th Anniversary as an Access Validating Agency. Many things have changed over those years but our fundamental mission in championing adult education and our values of inclusivity and supporting our providers, remains the same. Key to all of this is the privilege of continuing to proudly award Access to HE Diplomas to a diverse and deserving adult student population.
Due to demand we have added an additional date for our Quality Mark Webinar. One Awards Quality Mark is our formal, certificated endorsement of the quality of training offered by an employer or training organisation.
Off-the-job training is focused on teaching new skills rather than assessing existing skills and it is the responsibility of both the main provider and the employer to ensure that an apprentice spends a minimum of 20% of their employed time doing off-the-job training.
One Awards Training is aimed at supporting and inspiring our approved NOCN Group centres.
Following the transfer of One Awards staff to remote working we would like to remind centres to check they are using the correct postal address.
