What is it all about?
You are about to start a programme of work-based training and assessment leading to a nationally
recognised qualification, based on the National Occupational Standards for the industry. This learner
guide has been written in order to provide you with information and support as you work through to
achieving your qualification. As you make progress you will be able to demonstrate that you have the
necessary practical skills and the knowledge to do your work effectively and efficiently.

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 this qualification 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 a Diploma.

The Qualification
The NPTC Level 2 Diploma in Work-based Horse Care (0071 21 to 23) is a programme of workplace
training and assessment leading to a nationally recognised qualification.
