Credentialing qualifications for the Life Science Industry

EduQual is proud to launch a new qualification for those working in the Life Sciences industry.

Our new Award in Access to Hospitals (SCQF level 6) has been developed in partnership with HC Skills International and reinforces our drive to ensure the safety of patients and staff and to maximise the quality and efficiency of NHS-industry interaction.

Cogent Skills, the employer-led skills body for the UK Science sector have confirmed that this qualification has been successfully mapped to the ‘National Occupational Standards’ (NOS).

Learners who complete our existing Award in Access to Operating Theatres (SCQF level 8) are able to satisfy all three tiers of standards of proficiency of the new credentialing register for Life Sciences sector staff. However, learners who do not expect to access critical areas or patients now have the option of pursuing a credit-rated qualification that fully meets the Tier 1 criteria of the new credentialing register standards of proficiency.
