Level 2 Award in Employment Responsibilities and Rights in Health, Social Care, Children and Young People’s Settings (QCF) ASCENTIS’ MISSION STATEMENT
‘Building Partnerships to Advance and Accredit Lifelong Learning for All.’
About Ascentis Ascentis was originally established in 1975 as OCNW, a co-operative scheme between Universities and Colleges of Further Education. Ascentis was the first ‘Open College’ in the UK and served the needs of its members for over 34 years. Throughout this period, OCNW grew yet maintained its independence in order that it could continue to respond to the requirements of its customers and provide a consistently high standard of service to all centres across the country and in recent years to its increasing cohorts of overseas learners. In 2009 OCNW became Ascentis - a company limited by guarantee and a registered educational charity. Ascentis is distinctive and unusual in that it is both: a National Awarding Body (NAB) approved by the office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual)
and an Access Validating Agency (AVA) for ‘Access to HE Programmes’ licensed by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).
Ascentis is therefore able to offer a comprehensive ladder of opportunities to centres and their students, including Foundation Learning, vocational programmes and progressing to QAA recognised Access to HE qualifications. The flexible and adult-friendly ethos of Ascentis has resulted in centres throughout the UK choosing to run its qualifications.
