Highfield launches Award in Fundamental British Values

We are pleased to announce the launch of our brand-new qualification, the Highfield Entry Level Award in Fundamental British Values (Entry 3) (RQF).

This qualification is fully available for delivery and assessment now and aims to provide learners with knowledge of British values: democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs.

It also covers the aims of Prevent, concepts of extremism, radicalisation and terrorism and the impact of extremism on both local communities and the nation. Learners will learn how to identify the warning signs of radicalisation and how to keep themselves safe.

How long is the course?
The qualification has a total qualification time of 17 hours, of which 15 are recommended as guided learning hours, and so courses should follow this duration for the typical learner.

How is the qualification assessed?
It is assessed by an internally set and assessed portfolio of evidence. Highfield has provided centres with assessment documentation they can use, which is available to download from the Members’ Area. You will need to have IQA processes in place, and you will be supported by our EQS team through engagements.

How can I start to deliver?
You can start delivering this qualification now! Please contact your account manager and they can start the approval process for you.

Before delivering your courses, please make sure you are familiar with the qualification specification, which outlines all learning outcomes, assessment criteria and centre requirements.

What supporting resources are available?
We’ve created an Understanding Fundamental British Values and the Principles of Prevent Knowledge-kit to support you with the delivery of this qualification.

This Knowledge-kit enhances the learning experience of those completing the Entry Level 3 Award. It includes both a textbook and workbook for the following unit of the Highfield Entry Level 3 Award in Fundamental British Values.

The Knowledge-kit is also available as an e-kit (please note that e-kits are subject to VAT).

Contact your account manager today for more information about learner fees, kit prices and special offers!
