Awards & Qualifications

Awards & Qualifications


The creative arts are employed in every aspect of our company’s operation in order to devise imaginative projects and productions, which initiate debate and enable people to grow in confidence. We recognise achievement in a number of ways; one of which is through the certification of studies and/or activities.

The Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA)

We are registered with the AQA Examining Board and therefore we are able to offer the following nationally recognised qualifications:

Unit Awards

We are able to accredit students of any age or ability, with Awards for achievements in most subjects and topics, which are studied during the individual and group tuition sessions, workshops and courses we run. Unit Awards validate activities as worthwhile learning experiences and successful students receive certificates, which can then be placed in their record of achievement.

Entry Level Certificates

These qualifications focus on a particular subject or area of learning and can help build skills, increase knowledge and boost confidence. There are no entry requirements and certification can be awarded to students from year nine onwards.  Working to achieve an Entry Level Certificate, can be an excellent way to prepare for study at GCSE level.

GCSE Qualifications

We are an official AQA Exam Centre, therefore students are able to study practical and academic subjects to GCSE level. Students are also able sit their GCSE examinations in the premises we use to run our Complete Education provisions.

The Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme

The Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme scheme enables organisations such as ourselves to recognise the effort and achievement of young people in a practical and positive way. For more details see The Jack Petchey Foundation website.

The National Open College Network (NOCN)

NOCN is recognised by the Regulatory Authorities in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and provides flexible, credit-based qualifications to education and training providers and employers. TCW has received acceptance by NOCN to accredit courses which meet the educational needs of adults and young people.

Successful students receive certificates which can be placed in their
record of achievement
