NCFE/CACHE’s Customised Qualifications Licence is designed to give formal, demand led recognition to organisations’ bespoke programmes of learning.  The licence is based on the Investing in Quality Licence Quality Statements and Performance Criteria, see appendix 1 which provide a quality assurance framework for the development, delivery and evaluation of learning activities.

The Customised Qualifications Licence offers centres the opportunity to develop provision which identifies and accredits individual achievement of learning outcomes at a specified level. Hampshire Futures will offer support in developing accredited programmes to meet local needs. Programmes must satisfy the requirements set out in Quality Statements 1 – 7. They should have clearly stated learning outcomes relating to skills and knowledge as well as defined assessment criteria and methods.


Hampshire Futures has already developed a range of Customised Qualifications units which centres may wish to adopt.  Full details of current programmes are available on the Hampshire Futures VLE.

If you are interested in developing new units, guidance and support is available from Hampshire Futures.
