Study Programme Provision

Laser has a range of products and services ideally suited to Study Programme provision known together as Recognising the Learning Journey (RLJ).

For LASER’s Traineeship specific offer click here.

Recognising the Learning Journey (RLJ) relates in particular but not exclusively to recording, evidencing, maximising and recognising student engagement in non-qualification hours.  

Key benefits of LASER’s ‘Recognising the Learning Journey’:
  • Helps provide evidence to the Education Funding Agency of the ‘planned, timetabled, organised and supervised’ nature of your non-qualification provision;
  • Is a way of motivating students and therefore maximising attendance and retention;
  • Boosts leavers’ curriculum vitae and applications for employment or further/higher education to enhance their progression opportunities;
  • Helps demonstrate to Ofsted how your organisation’s non-qualification provision is meeting student needs and having a positive impact on learning.
LASER’s ‘Recognising the Learning Journey’ (RLJ) is a range of products and services specifically designed for centres running Study Programmes:
  • Education Funding Agency contract holders claiming funding for learners aged 16-19 and/or those aged 16-25 with a Learning Disability Assessment (LDA) or Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).
  • Skills Funding Agency providers operating Traineeships.
RLJ 1: Customised learner certification of learner engagement in non-qualification hours
  • Bespoke Learner Certification – Activity Tracking Option
  • Bespoke Learner Certification – Bespoke Unit of Assessment
  • Bespoke Learner Certification – RLJ Quality Mark Option
    (The RLJ Quality Mark can also be used without involving learner certification)

LASER has 4 exemplars: ‘Induction’, ‘Succeeding in Study’, ‘Work and Work-Related Learning’ and ‘Planning for the Future’. Each has an indicative checklist.
RLJ 2: QCF Unit Accreditation and Qualifications
For example, QCF literacy and/or numeracy units for learners without a GCSE A*-C who would benefit from achieving stepping stones on their way towards Functional Skills or GCSE.
RLJ 3: Targeted Quality or Curriculum Support
To assist in Study Programme development (which could include a full external audit of your non-qualifications hours provision)
