This page is about formal education and qualifications. A qualification is confirmation that you have met a given standard of knowledge, understanding and/or skill.
Typically, qualifications relate to longer-term study. In recent years, there has been a rise in micro-credentials, which refers to bite-size, shorter-term learning focusing on a specific area. Often studied online, micro-credentials usually result in certification.
This page does not seek to show a full list of qualifications available in the UK. Instead, it highlights some key places that you can go to find out more about and work out which courses might be best for you, at specific stages of your career.
