We are delighted to announce the launch of our brand new learner certificates for Smart IA. These are immediately available to all institutions, including colleges and ITPs, that currently use our Smart IA tool. 

Since the launch of Smart IA last September we have received feedback from our partners across the sector including requests for new features. Smart IA certificates were the most common request we have received this year. With a view to always innovating and improving, we moved to deliver these as soon as possible.

These certificates are available to download as print-friendly PDFs from the Assessments tab on the platform. Learners can be issued with a record of their achievement and progress, and providers can keep a copy in the learner’s file for the necessary auditing and evidencing purposes.

The learner’s ‘Working Towards’ level is stated on the certificate, which shows the level of Functional Skills qualification they should be working to achieve. A sub-level of low, medium or high is also stated, which can be used as a guideline for a learner’s confidence with their given course level.

CENTURY's Smart IA project is supported by the Ufi VocTech Trust.

Some more information on the levels can be found here.
