4 Qualification overview This NOCN Level 5 Diploma in Compliance Risk Management for the Debt Collection Industry (QCF) has been created by the Credit Services Association (CSA) and accredited through our awarding organisation partner: NOCN. This accreditation process is in-line with requirements set by the qualifications regulators in England (Ofqual), Wales (DCELLS) and Northern Ireland (CCEA) and is part of the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). This Learning Guide and Syllabus provides employers and learners with everything they need to know about this qualification, which includes an overview regarding the expected learning outcomes and assessment criteria that learners will be expected to achieve in order to pass this qualification. The National Occupational Standards (NOS) and the Financial and Legal Skills Partnership (FLSP), the Sector Skills Council for our industry has been considered and mapped against the development of these units of study. Qualification aim This NOCN Level 5 Diploma in Compliance Risk Management for the Debt Collection Industry (QCF) examines the role of the compliance officer, the implications of compliance risk for businesses and how the organisation can demonstrate its compliance controls to the regulators. It explores the importance of compliance assessment and business risk strategies. You will learn about measures and techniques for analysing and addressing compliance. The unit also examines how effective compliance risk management supports the debt collection activities of the organisation. Ofqual The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) is the regulator of qualifications and is an independent non-ministerial government department accountable to Parliament. Ofqual has been the regulator of all approved qualifications, examinations and assessments in England since Together with its partner regulators in Wales (DCELLS) and Northern Ireland (CCEA), Ofqual is responsible for the regulation of the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). 2

5 NOCN NOCN is a leading UK awarding organisation, offering high quality, flexible, credit-based qualifications and is accredited by the Regulatory Authorities in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. NOCN qualifications are delivered through further education and sixth form colleges, universities and higher education institutions, trade unions, TUC education, employers, local education authorities, training organisations, adult and community education centres, and voluntary community organisations. National Occupational Standards National Occupational Standards (NOS) are defined by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills as: describing what a person needs to do and understand in their job to carry out their role in a consistent and competent way. NOS define the knowledge and performance criteria against which competencies are assessed. FLSP Financial & Legal Skills Partnership Financial & Legal Skills Partnership The Financial and Legal Skills Partnership (FLSP) is the government-licensed Sector Skills Council (SSC) that is proactively involved in supporting the development of a skilled workforce in the UK s financial, legal and accountancy sectors. The FLSP is also a charity, which is focussed on developing skills-based solutions to help support and sustain a commercially-dynamic industry. 3

6 About this Qualification This NOCN Level 5 Diploma in Compliance Risk Management for the Debt Collection Industry (QCF) has been designed as a standalone qualification or provides a progression route for learners that have previously completed the CSA Level 3 Diploma for the Debt Collection Industry. This qualification is an industry recognised qualification that offers proof of knowledge and the skills required to function as a proficient professional compliance officer or a person with the key responsibility for compliance within an organisation that is involved in the recovery of consumer, commercial or utility debt. This Diploma qualification has been approved for use in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Entry Requirements It is the employer s or sponsor s responsibility to ensure that the learner has been appropriately identified and selected to take this qualification. Any identified learning needs should be communicated to the CSA at the time of enrolment so we can provide any additional support or accommodate any specific development needs of the student. There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification. However, the CSA recommends that potential students should have a minimum of a level 4 qualification or equivalent work experience within the business. The content and level of demand of this qualification is broadly equivalent to a foundation degree in the area of business management. Therefore, given the complexity of some of the content we believe that students will not have sufficient knowledge or experience below the age of 19. Equal Opportunities Statement The Credit Services Association and NOCN do not discriminate against any learner on the grounds of race, gender, disability, religious beliefs, or role within any member organisation. If any learner has been diagnosed with any type of disability that may impact on the successful completion of the NOCN Level 5 Diploma in Compliance Risk Management for the Debt Collection Industry (QCF), CSA and NOCN should be informed so that they can accommodate any special requirements or needs. 4

7 Qualification Review Date All qualifications on the QCF have review dates and expiry dates. This NOCN Level 5 Diploma in Compliance Risk Management for the Debt Collection Industry (QCF) will be reviewed on 31/03/2019 and the process for this review will start approximately 18 months prior to this date. However, due to the nature of this sector and the legislative framework that the Debt Collection Industry must adhere to, any unit of study may be amended to reflect new developments or changes in regulatory requirements. If this is the case then we will set a new date. Equally, if a decision is made to withdraw a unit we will, in partnership with NOCN, undertake a review and set a new review date. Assessment National standards and rigorous quality assurance are maintained by the use of assessments. Each unit of study within this NOCN Level 5 Diploma in Compliance Risk Management for the Debt Collection Industry (QCF) will be holistically assessed by appropriate assessment methods, which are to be marked by nominated CSA professional tutors. Quality assurance is monitored internally by the CSA Diploma Steering Group and externally by NOCN verification systems, to ensure that national standards are maintained. All assessments will be graded as a Referral or Pass. If a student is referred for an assignment and does not meet the assessment requirement following a second submission then they will have the opportunity to retake the assessment at an additional cost within a given timeframe from referral notification. The student has the right to appeal against any decisions as outlined in the referral policy. If the student does not submit assessments within the allotted deadline then a referral grade will be given. However, the student can apply for Extenuating Circumstances for the mitigation panel to consider (this form can be obtained by contacting the CSA Diploma Team). The CSA defines extenuating circumstances as: Significant, unforeseen personal or operational business matters that result in a major impact on a learner s ability to complete, or submit an assessment within the allotted timeframe. Learners will be expected to submit all assessments in a word processed format using the Harvard Referencing method. Instructions on how to use this referencing system will be provided in a study pack. 5

18 Frequently Asked Questions FAQ s FAQ s Q A What is this Level 5 Diploma equivalent too? In England, Wales and Northern Ireland we have an 8 level qualification framework, therefore any Level 5 accredited qualification is equivalent to a foundation degree or an HND. To put this into context: Level 6 = Honours Degree Level 7 = Masters Level 8 = PHD. Q A How long does it take to complete the Level 5 Diploma? This is a full 12 month course with one monthly classroom session. However, by the time the student completes the final project it may take longer as it is not expected of learners to submit the compliance strategy within the first 12 months - getting the plan right for the business is equally important. Therefore this qualification, in reality, may take up to 14 months to complete. Q A As an employer, how many additional hours of study will the student have to put into the course? This is difficult to define. Excluding the classroom sessions, the student will be expected to do a considerable amount of external research and we also recommend a reading list. However, this qualification is equally designed to be a considerable benefit for the business and therefore the majority of the additional activities should simply complement or be embedded into the individual s daily workload. 16

19 Q What happens if a student fails the exam? A Q A As with all the assessments, if a student does not manage to attain the minimum grade to pass the examination then we will offer an alternative examination that can be re-taken at a pre-defined time throughout the course. This principle is the same for all assessments and we will offer as much support as possible to ensure that the student passes the course overall. What happens if a student cannot make a classroom session? We understand that students may be unable to attend a classroom session whether this is due to a business commitment or annual leave etc. Therefore, if a student misses a session then we can forward all the information and learning materials to the student, followed up with a call if required. Either way we will ensure that students are kept up-to-date. FAQ s FAQ s Q How will this qualification make a student more competent in their role? A Students will gain a great deal from this course and also the organisation will get the opportunity to review all of its current compliance practices. More importantly students will gain a more indepth knowledge regarding the regulator, whilst demonstrating that they are a competent and highly skilled professional expert in the field of compliance. 17
