What is the Qualifications and Credit Framework?
OFQUAL have introduced the Qualifications and Credit Framework to increase flexibility for learners and
employers. It allows learners to build towards a qualification,rather than having to do all of
it at the same time. Qualifications may be built up from individual units according to rules of combination.
The qualifications and rules of combination (structures) are set out in this handbook. The units are
derived from the National Occupational Standards, which are compiled by Lantra SSC, the Sector Skills
Council for the Land-based industries.
Delivery and assessment of these qualifications is similar to the previous NVQs but there are some
administrative changes that centres will need to put in place, such as access to unique learner numbers.
Each unit has been assigned a number of credits and the units will be assessed in the workplace and
build up to either an Award, Certificate or Diploma.
The NPTC Level 1 Award, Certificate and Diploma in Work-based Horse Care and the Level 1 Diploma in
Work-based Horse Care and Riding (0071-11) are programmes of workplace training and assessment
leading to a nationally recognised qualification. They aim to:
• meet the needs of learners who work or want to work in the equine industry
• allow learners to learn, develop and practise the skills required for employment and/or career
progression in the equine industry
• replace the following qualification:
NPTC Level 1 NVQ in Horse Care (7482-01) (QAN 100/1409/3) which expires on 31 December 2010
