Industry Qualifications (IQ) has agreed with Cogent (the Sector Skills Council for chemical, pharmaceutical, nuclear, petroleum, polymers and life sciences business) and other awarding organisations operating within the Cogent sector footprint, that it will assume responsibility for 38 units for the polymer sector. The other awarding organisations have each assumed responsibility for Cogent units in other industries.

The role involves responsibility for the maintenance and submission of units to qualifications regulatory bodies, for qualifications based upon National Occupational Standards produced by Cogent. “We are delighted to take on this responsibility which provides a clear signal of our commitment to the sector” said Raymond Clarke, Chief Executive of IQ. “We look forward to working with key stakeholders in the sector to ensure that polymer qualifications meet the needs of employers”.
