Why Offer International Qualifications?
Across the world there is a growing disconnect between the skills people gain and the skills that employers need.
There is a growing realization that industry, regulatory bodies and training authorities must collaborate in designing and implementation of educational systems and curricula to meet the skills requirements and to assist in the transition from education to employment.
Demographic change, global skills shortages and growing labour migration are increasing the demand for skills and qualifications that will make it easier for people to move from one country to another to find a job. It is therefore essential that to work towards a qualification that is internationally recognised.
We assist training providers to obtain centre and qualification approval with Highfield Qualifications.
