‘Retrain to Retain’ initiative
For those providers offering or interested in BTEC qualifications that map to CIMSPA professional standards, it may be advantageous for you to familiarise yourself with the ‘Retrain to Retain’ initiative. Centres that are either CIMSPA Employer Partner or Training Provider Partner would be eligible to access
- Training needs analyses are conducted with the Employer Partners and their training needs are matched to the available qualifications and CPD – accessing the above courses
- Or where Training Provider Partners, you have access to registering to become a delivery centre. You will then be matched where individuals or employers apply for Pearson endorsed qualifications.
