ATHE's Qualification Development and Endorsement services are applicable to and have had a positive impact on a wide range of organisations including employers, training providers, colleges and higher education providers.
The following are just a few examples of where ATHE has helped organisations add value to the learning programmes they provide.
Interface Enterprises is a national provider of specialist support, evaluation, training, information and resources for those working to transform the lives of vulnerable families.
As part of their work they provide training to a wide range of organisations, including local authorities, schools and charities.
In 2015 they decided that, due to changes in government policy and the general direction of travel in the sector, a new qualification would be required to meet the needs of organisations and individuals working in this field.
Limkokwing University offer a “Global Campus Programme”. This is delivered in London over an intense one-month period to students who have travelled from other universities around the world.
Association of Research Managers and Administrators
The Association of Research Managers and Administrators (ARMA) where qualifications at levels 3 in research administration and management were developed in partnership with ATHE.
ARMA is a professional body which represents people working in the research administration departments of universities. ARMA identified a need for qualifications which could be offered to members that reflected the professionalism of research management and administration and the increased stature of people undertaking these roles in their organisations.
Marie Garnett, Head Professional Development at ARMA said, 'ATHE worked with me to ensure that ARMA's Level 3 Certificate in Research Administration was in the correct format and language for it to be regulated by Ofqual'. The ATHE Head of Qualifications was excellent - extremely quick to grasp our aims and punctual and clear in her feedback.'
ATHE has now also developed qualifications for ARMA at levels 5 and 7.
Jewish Teacher Training College
An independent teacher training college based in Gateshead approached ATHE after identifying a need for learners to receive a regulated qualification after completing their studies.
They had been offering courses to learners successfully for many years. The task was to produce regulated qualifications which accurately reflected the intended outcomes of the existing programme of learning.
Online Business School
Online Business School provides learning programmes to both individual learners and satellite centres around the world. ATHE worked with OBS to develop Diplomas in Computing at levels 4 and 5.
As these qualifications are for learners using a range of study modes, including classroom based, blended learning and online, it was important to develop units that allow learners to achieve irrespective of their learning situation.
