Introductory Lesson

This qualification is vocational as can support a learner’s career progression. To meet QUALIFI’s aim to provide an appropriate assessment method, each unit will be assessed through tasks that will be written in a way to make them realistic ‘work-related’ tasks wherever possible. Learners will need to demonstrate their knowledge, understanding, original thought, problem-solving and recommendations on actions will also be asked for where appropriate. Intellectual rigour will be expected that is appropriate to the level of the qualification.

Assignments will contain a question strand for each of the given unit’s learning outcomes. The assignment tasks will address the LO (learning outcome) and AC (assessment criteria) requirements. Within assignments, there will always be requirements for learners to engage with important and relevant theory that underpins the subject area.

The assignment questions will require learners to draw on real organisations to illustrate their answers. Mature and part-time learners will ideally be able to draw on their personal work experience too.

Learners completing the QUALIFI Level 6 Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety Management can progress to:

  • QUALIFI Level 7 Diploma, or
  • the first year of postgraduate study, or
  • directly into employment in an associated profession.

The pathways are an indication of a learner’s progress towards a university degree and are based on the university’s review of QUALIFI’s learning programmes and outcomes. Further information is available here
