Fareham College achieves successful outcomes with CACHE qualifications

Fareham College currently delivers a range of CACHE qualifications from Level 1 to 4 in Childcare, Education, Health and Social Care. They are also one of the first providers delivering the T Level Technical Qualification In Education and Childcare (Level 3) from September 2020.

Michelle Young, Faculty Director of Health, Science and Education at Fareham College, shares her experience of working with CACHE.

“We chose to work with CACHE because of the high quality qualifications and its strong reputation in the sector. We find delivering the qualifications brilliant. The support we receive from CACHE is outstanding, we have a great relationship with our External Verifier (EV) and we know we can contact them for support at any time.

Benefitting teachers and learners

“We believe that CACHE is an organisation that really respects and trusts us as teaching professionals and therefore their quality processes embed this aspect, which reduces our workload. We also find their online facilities easy to use so we can find the information we need swiftly.

“Our learners have really benefitted from CACHE qualifications. The qualifications are regularly reviewed, adapted and developed. We have also been involved in shaping the new T Level qualifications with CACHE and we have found this really useful to support us to prepare for our September 2020 delivery.

Flexible delivery to suit learning needs

“CACHE qualifications are flexible to deliver and can be adjusted to suit changing requirements such as legislation. This means we can teach students the most up-to-date methods being used in real settings, or spend time teaching contemporary issues that affect us locally. Our learners also benefit from the variety of ways evidence can be produced; this supports a wide range of learners and allows us to personalise the curriculum to suit learning needs or experiences.

“We are always recommending CACHE to others and we were very happy they were chosen to be the delivery partner for the Education and Childcare T Level.” 

Giving learners the confidence to fulfil their potential

“During our recent EV visit one learner commented on how happy she was studying the CACHE qualification and said ‘the placement element gave her so much confidence that she could now  see herself having a solid career’ whereas before she started the course, she was happy settling with any employment she could get.

“Comments like this from learners make the job of teaching so worthwhile. It makes me proud to have possibly impacted a young person’s life forever.”
