What is Ofqual?

Ofqual is the government organisation that regulates the standard of qualifications, and the organisations that are offering them.

The flexibility of our units allows you to customise your qualification so that it’s entirely tailored to you. With IoSCM, you have the benefit of choosing units that will enhance your current job performance, and equip you with the skills needed to take your career to the next level.

Award, Certificate or Diploma?

The full Level 3 Logistics and Transport qualification is available as a Diploma. However, we also offer the option of working towards an Award or a Certificate, if you would prefer a less comprehensive course which can be completed more quickly.

The different levels can be explained as follows:

  • Award: A Level 3 Logistics and Transport Award consists of one core unit. This is the shortest available qualification, making it a good option if you would like an introduction to one specific topic. This course will help to enhance your knowledge in one key area, but it won’t give you a more comprehensive overview of the logistics and transport industry as a whole.
  • Certificate: To complete a Level 3 Certificate, you will need to study one core unit and two additional units (either core or optional). This will provide you with solid knowledge across a number of key topics, but is not the same full qualification as the Diploma.
  • Diploma: The Diploma is the full version of our Level 3 Logistics and Transport qualification, so it is much more in-depth and comprehensive than the other levels. To get the most out of your Level 3 course and give you the best chance of taking your career to the next level, we would recommend the Diploma as your best option. In order to complete the course, you will need to study one core unit and three additional units (either core or optional).

“I have been in the Oil & Gas Industry for the last 25 years and have had no formal qualifications so I considered it important to develop my skill set to enhance my career options.

I would recommend the IoSCM courses to anyone who has a busy lifestyle and wants to have a good industry recognised qualification at the end of the course.”
