Qualifications and Credit Framework

Competence-based qualifications for building services engineering in the QCF




SummitSkills, the Sector Skills Council for building services engineering and the awarding organisations City & Guilds and EAL worked closely together to develop new qualifications in accordance with the new regulatory requirements for the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) industry working practices, technologies and legislation.  The new qualifications will continue to provide the sector with the competent and skilled workforce it needs to meet fast changing demands.

Assessment Evidence Requirements and Guidance

Due to the restrictions inherent within the Qfqual Register we have been unable to include the normal guidance for assessment of Learning Outcomes and Auditable Evidence Requirements. Therefore we have created a spreadsheet for use with the units here. As new units are added to the Register, we will add guidance for those units to this document.


Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that the qualification delivery network and employers will have concerns and questions about the new qualifications and their potential impact.  In response to questions recently asked, we have put together a list of frequently asked questions to help answer some of the most likely queries.
