It is a practical, competency-based certification demonstrating a candidate’s ability to perform tasks effectively within their chosen profession.

NVQs offer a flexible learning approach, allowing individuals to progress at their own pace and achieve their qualifications while working. NVQs are ideal for those seeking career advancement and employers looking to develop their workforce. In addition to vocational skills, NVQs can help individuals develop essential transferable skills, such as problem-solving, communication, and teamwork.

Loyalty Program: Earn and Redeem Points for Ongoing Learning

Our loyalty program is designed to provide a seamless experience for our students, combining CPD (Continuing Professional Development) points with loyalty points to create a single, streamlined system that enhances the value of continuous learning. Here's an in-depth look at how this program functions and the benefits it brings:


Every course completed earns students a specific number of points, which reflect both the complexity and value of the course. For instance, a more advanced course might yield more points than a shorter introductory course, providing a fair and proportional reward system.

Our user-friendly dashboard within the online learning platform displays the total accumulated points for each student. Clarity and transparency are central to this program; students can easily track their progress and points earned.

Once students reach a designated threshold of loyalty points, they become eligible to redeem those points for discounts on future courses. For instance, accumulating 500 points may result in a 10% discount on the next course, while 1000 points could unlock a 20% discount.

Students have the freedom to choose how they utilize their loyalty points. They can use points for discounts on individual courses, save up for substantial discounts on more advanced courses, or even exchange points for exclusive access to premium content.

To maintain engagement and motivate continuous learning, loyalty points could have an expiration date. Additionally, we may introduce tiered rewards, offering bonus points for achieving specific milestones, encouraging students to aim higher in their learning journey.

We launch the loyalty program with enthusiasm, ensuring students understand its significant benefits. We maintain regular communication through emails, newsletters, and platform announcements. Sharing success stories of students who have saved on courses using loyalty points further motivates others to participate.

Students are encouraged to share their accomplishments and loyalty points milestones on social media. Bonus points may be awarded for referring new students to the academy, fostering a cycle of engagement and growth.

Students with significant loyalty points may enjoy additional perks, such as access to exclusive webinars, personalized consultations, or early access to new course releases, further enriching their learning experience.

We value student input. The loyalty program acts as a valuable feedback loop, where students can suggest improvements, additional rewards they’d appreciate, or thoughts on enhancing the program.

Loyalty program benefits can be combined with other promotions like early bird discounts or limited-time offers, maximizing value for our students.
