Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF)
The QCF is a credit based framework that replaces the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). The framework assigns credit values to units and qualifications, allowing learners and centres easily to track progression and accumulation of learning and skills. The QCF tracks achievement data via a unique learner number (ULN). Centres will need to register with the Learner Registration Service (LRS) to get ULNs for their candidates, by emailing email@example.com or by calling 0845 602 2589, stating that City & Guilds is their Awarding Organisation (AO). The units and qualifications below are listed on the QCF and meet the requirements of the framework.
