Many of our qualifications are included on Intermediate and Advanced Apprenticeship Frameworks, all these Qualifications if delivered as Apprenticeships are funded.

ProQual Qualifications on Apprenticeship Frameworks incorporate the latest developments and trends in areas such as Social Media and Digital Marketing, Intelligence Analysis/Operations and Civil  Engineering Services. These are not only current and specialist, but they can also lead to exciting employment opportunities.


Personal Listening and Thinking Skills (PLTS) are a requirement for inclusion in an Apprenticeship Framework. PLTS must be formally assessed and an audit trail provided that demonstrates clearly where, how, when and who assessed the PLTS in a similar way to qualifications with NVQ in the title.


Each of the PLTS has been signposted/mapped to a number of the QCF units and apprentices will achieve the PLTS by completing these units. Further information can be found in the PLTS Mapping Evidence Sheet and PLTS Mapping Guidelines.


Trailblazer Apprenticeship Standards show what an apprentice will be doing and the skills required of them, by job role.  Standards are developed by employer groups known as Trailblazers. Trailblazers develop the assessment plan for the apprenticeship for use by employers and training providers.  The assessment plan may include the achievement of qualifications to demonstrate skills and knowledge.


ProQual has qualifications that meet off the job training requirements for some Trailblazer Apprenticeship Standards, training providers must be approved ProQual centres to deliver these qualifications.
