What is an OSCAR?

The unique OSCAR® (On Site Competency Assessment Report) is a recognised and is the preferred choice for leading UKAS Certification Bodies with proof of competency, being a requirement within the PAS2030-17 specification.

Having demonstrated and helped many Organisations to achieve certification within (some eamples) the Construction Sector, as a widely accepted as proof of client competence and skill quality assurance, this Recognition has now extended to support all curriculums & skill sets on a National & International level.

Combining the knowledge, qualifications and experience gained within many sectors across many disciplines, being assessed against approved criteria gives the scheme a distinct advantage:-

The key focus of OSCAR® is designed to provide bespoke Assessment and Accreditation in real live working environments in partnership with key stakeholders for specialist sectors to help to support, develop existing and new clients, whilst recognising the ‘needs’ of those delivering their skill sets.

What is an Approved Centre?

There are currently two Sector Providers:-

Sector Provider Brands take ownership of GDPR, Approvals, Maintenance of Quality Assurance Provisions (QAP) and Service Level Agreements (SLA) with Trainers & Assessors. Organisations wishing to Brand a specific sector outside of the sub-divisions listed, ask us how to become an Approved Centre, associated costs and responsibilities HERE.
