- CACDP Level 3 Certificate in Facilitating Communication with Deaf People (Lipspeaking Skills) and (Notetaking Skills). Qualification Ref: 500/1613/1
- CACDP Level 3 Certificate in Facilitating Communication with Deafblind People (Manual). Qualification Ref: 500/1614/3
What happens next?
Level 3 Certificates for LSPs and Level 3 Certificate in Insights into Communication with Congenitally Deafblind People which are due to expire later in the current academic year will be extended shortly.
We have an existing promise to centres that we will make no changes to our qualifications during the teaching year. As we renew accreditation for each of our qualifications over the next two years they will become Signature qualifications.
The remainder of our qualifications will be accredited as Signature qualifications on the QCF. Details will be published in May 2010 for delivery in September of that year. In the meantime, all our current qualifications remain accredited on the NQF (National Qualifications Framework), and remain eligible for LSC funding.
