Who are QGA
GQA Qualifications are an Awarding Organisation for specialist sectors and occupational roles. Our current qualifications cover the Glass, Construction, Coating and Print industries.
Our aim is to work only with industries that we have access to knowledge within GQA, giving us a real ability to discuss specific qualifications with both centres and employers.
Qualification development is carried out in accordance with regulatory and Sector Skill Council requirements, using industry experts throughout the development and consultation processes.
What this means for VELA
VELA Training can now operate under the accreditation of GQA and be able to certificate all our candidates to high standards using GQA's guidance.
We are now subject to internal EV visits which means we have to maintain, develop and improve our assessment techniques at all times which always keeps us up to date with the best assessment techniques.
VELA Training would like to say a special thank you to Phil Douglas (External Quality Advisor / Technical Officer) who has guided us to successful accreditation.
