About Us

CACHE stands for the Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education, and we are the leading specialist Awarding Organisation for the Care and Education Sector. Our core business as an Awarding Organisation is the development of high quality vocational qualifications. We either write the syllabus based on the workforce development strategy for the sector, or develop them jointly with employers. We then develop the assessments which are used to determine if the learners have gained sufficient knowledge and skills from the course to be awarded the qualification.In addition we work with trade unions, professional associations, Sector Skills Councils, (SSCs), and government departments to ensure all our qualifications are truly fit for purpose.These qualifications are used by over 1000 Colleges and Training Providers in the UK and abroad.
