Enhance your Induction Programmes with Short Online Qualifications

As we start to move closer to the new academic year, you may be starting to plan your induction & enrichment programmes. With that in mind why not learn more about Ascentis Short Online Qualifications?

Ascentis Short Online Qualifications (SOQs) are ready-made flexible qualifications, which help to ensure centres are supporting learners with their personal development, behaviour and welfare.

Developed in line with Government agendas and Ofsted priorities these qualifications cover a range of topics, which are essential within the curriculum.

These qualifications are designed to be delivered in large volumes and really make a great addition to any induction and enrichment programme. An added benefit is that learners don't have to come into the centre to sit the assessments with our e-Invigilation solution. This provides centres with extra flexibility when planning their induction programmes. 

All qualifications within this suite are between 10 & 20 guided learning hours and include the following:

  • Infection Control and Prevention
  • Citizenship
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Food Safety
  • Health & Safety
  • Healthy Living and Well-being for Mental Health
  • Internet Safety
  • British Values
  • Inclusive Environment
  • Mental Health & Well-being
  • Safeguarding
  • Understanding Employment, Business and Enterprise
  • Personal Safety
  • Managing Personal Finance
Enhance your Induction Programmes with Short Online Qualifications

All of the qualifications within this suite are accompanied by free interactive online resources and are assessed by the learner completing an online multiple choice e-assessment. We have recently added to the resources within this suite, which now also include vocabulary glossaries and tutor guidance for all SOQs.
