TTA Awarded VTCT Accreditation For The Delivery Of Functional Skills Qualifications.

TTA, the North West-based logistics training organisation, are pleased to have been awarded VTCT accreditation for the delivery of Functional Skills, (FS) qualifications.

Transport Training Academy already offers a comprehensive list of logistics and driver training courses, but we are always looking for new ways to add even more value to our training portfolio. So naturally we’re delighted to have been awarded VTCT accreditation.

The Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT), is a Government- approved awarding organisation which has been awarding world class qualifications since 1962 and has been in the forefront of developing vocational qualifications in the United Kingdom ever since. VTCT is a registered charity whose primary aim is to provide qualifications that develop and recognise world class skills in the service industries.

This new accreditation allows Transport Training Academy to deliver Functional Skills as part of our approved qualifications.

Functional Skills are practical skills in English, mathematics, and information and communication technology (ICT) that allow individuals to engage confidently, effectively and independently in life. The VTCT Functional Skills qualifications are designed to bring real-life into the learning environment. They are not just about the learners’ knowledge in the subject areas, but are also about them knowing how and when to use that knowledge in real-life situations.

The VTCT Functional Skills qualifications aim to:

  • Deliver knowledge, skills and understanding that are directly relevant to real-life contexts, ensuring that learners appreciate the practical applications of their learning and can exercise problem-solving techniques that are necessary in further learning, employment and everyday life.
  • Provide accreditation that verifies the Functional Skills proficiencies and achievement at either level 1 or level 2.
  • Provide accreditation that supports progression in a wide range of learning and employment contexts, including vocational or technical education and training, academic study, and employment.
  • Provide accreditation of achievement for both the desirable and the mandatory requirements of other qualifications and learning programmes, such as Apprenticeship frameworks, GCSEs, Diplomas, and employment-based training.

VTCT Functional Skills assessments are based on stimulating scenarios that reflect real-life.

They require learners to respond to situations, resolve problems and decide upon appropriate outcomes for a range of tasks, based upon their learning in the subject area. The assessments have a limited duration and must be undertaken under controlled assessment conditions. The assessments elicit and measure skills-based techniques and problem-solving learning that is appropriate to the specified level.

The VTCT Functional Skills qualifications are suitable for all learners who wish to develop these important skills at levels 1 and 2, as their content is relevant to a wide range of learning programmes, personal development opportunities and employment. While Functional Skills are generic, transferable and essential for dealing with everyday situations in life, learning and employment, the VTCT qualifications have been carefully designed to be delivered in vocational contexts and to appeal to learners in vocational training and apprenticeships.
