EVENT: Education and Training event London 8 November 2018

Highfield will be holding an event in November for trainers interested in our education and training qualifications.

Held at the Holiday Inn, Mayfair, London, on 8 November 2018, the event will cover everything you need to know about the Highfield Level 3 Award in Education and Training (RQF) and the Highfield Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training (RQF).

Key areas for discussion will be qualification content, delivery methods, and tutor, assessor and IQA requirements. You’ll also have the opportunity to discover the difference between delivering the learning and development units and non-learning and development units, as well as the education and training foundation and professional standards for teachers.

The event is suitable for centres already delivering the qualifications, as well as those looking to offer them in the future.

It is also ideal for those who have previously delivered PTLLS and want to understand more on the difference between the previous suite of teaching and training qualifications (PTLLS/CTLLS) and the new level 3 and level 4 education and training qualifications.

There also will be the chance to ask our experts questions throughout the day, and to network with professionals in your areas, with lunch and refreshments provided.

Delegate places start at just £50 plus VAT. Attendance entitles you to 6 CPD points.

Important update to first aid qualifications

First Aid ResponseFirst aid qualifications are changing – with new requirements for tutors, assessors and IQA from later in the year.

The changes, which come into effect from 1 October 2015, will see a number of updates implemented designed to improve the rigour of first aid training qualifications and safeguard learners.

Details of the changes include requirements that:

  • Tutors hold regulated teaching or training qualifications
  • Assessors have a formal (regulated) assessing qualification
  • IQAs will need to achieve a formal (regulated) IQA qualification

Where assessors and IQAs do not hold the required qualifications, they will need to undertake first-aid assessor/IQA CPD training with an Awarding Organisation.

Further details of the tutor/assessor and IQA qualifications can be found within the qualification specification for any of the HABC first aid at work qualifications or within the Skills for Health assessment principle document.

HABC account managers are currently reviewing all tutor certificates held on the HABC system. Tutors/assessors that do not fulfil the requirements by 1 October 2015 will not be able to be selected by Centres when posting a course.

For more information, contact your HABC account manager.

Please note: it is not mandatory to attend these events to deliver or internal quality assure any of these qualifications, providing tutors/assessors and IQAs already meet the nominated requirements within their qualification specifications.


These events follow the guidance issued by Skills For Health and act as formal first aid CPD training, as opposed to previous first-aid orientation sessions, which were designed to introduce current and prospective first aid centres to HABC paperwork.
