Facilities Management

There are primarily two groups of qualifications in the Facilities Management sector – QCF’s (formerly NVQ's) and VRQ’s. Candidates can choose which qualification they wish to achieve depending on the level of qualification they require and the method of assessment that suits them.

Funding may be available for some candidates or qualifications – click here  for details.

The qualifications are suited to most employees in the diverse facilities management industry – this suits organisations and their employees such as:

  • Contract facilities management providers to commercial and industrial premises
  • Those employees providing support services within their own organisations such as schools, local authorities, housing associations, offices, prisons, shopping malls, and hospitals

Qualification Credit Framework (QCF’s)

QCF’s qualifications are delivered and assessed largely in the workplace and focussing on each candidate’s own experience and job role. This type of qualification is more suited to candidates who have existing experience of the sector who wish to achieve a qualification to demonstrate current competence.

This type of qualification is currently available at QCF Levels 2, 3 and 4 through the Awarding Organisation WAMITAB. Level 3 qualifications are suited to those learners broadly in a supervisory role while the level 4 qualification is more suited towards facility managers. 

Assessment of the learner takes place in their own working environment and ensures minimal disruption to their normal working day while being assessed. As a result this type of qualification proves popular with those learners who do not have time to take out from their busy work schedule / employment.
