Planning your induction programmes for the academic year 2020-2021
As we begin to move closer to the new academic year, many of you will be starting to plan induction programmes for new learners & staff as well as those returning to the classroom.
Ascentis have an extensive range of Short Online Qualificationswhich many of our existing centres use to form the basis of their induction programmes.
Why choose Ascentis SOQs?
Ascentis Short Online Qualifications (SOQs) are designed to support learners with their own development, life skills and personal welfare. All of the qualifications within this suite are accompanied by free interactive online resources and are assessed by an online multiple choice e-assessment, which can now be completed remotely. SOQs are fully funded via the Local Flexibility offer and are a cost effective solution for any centre looking to enhance their induction programme.
Developed in line with Government agendas and Ofsted priorities, our SOQs cover a range of topics which are essential within the curriculum. These include:
- Entry 3 Award in Healthy Living for Well-Being and Mental Health
- Entry 3 Award in Introduction to Safeguarding
- Level 1 Award in Awareness of Social Media and Online Safety
- Level 1 Award in Managing Personal Finance
Brand New for 2020-2021
well as the safety of others as they return to college or education settings.
Remote Learning & Assessment
Ascentis SOQs are part of our e-learning offer which means students are able to complete their assessment from almost anywhere. They simply require an internet connection, computer with webcam capability & their smartphone. Our e-invigilation remotely monitors learners taking their assessments and ensures they meet exam condition requirements. We now also provide e-certificates in addition to paper based at no additional cost. These qualifications have become hugely important over the last few months enabling learners to continue their studies from home.
