About Skillsfirst

Skillsfirst is a regulated awarding organisation and approved End-Point Assessment organisation.

They design and develop qualifications and assessments which inspire people to fulfil their personal goals and drive their careers forward. More than 400,000 people have achieved a Skillsfirst qualification since their launch in 2010.

The challenge


Skillsfirst has worked with Advanced Secure since 2010. They required a solution to secure and streamline their awarding documentation processes.

To date, we have worked in conjunction with Skillsfirst to produce their full suite of awarding documents. Our Digital Certificates solution has allowed them to streamline and secure their awarding operation while providing 24/7 – 365  access to Digital Awarding Documents for their learners.

Using our solutions

“Skillsfirst has been working in close collaboration with Advanced Secure since our inception in 2010. We were the first Awarding Organisation to adopt the Digital Certificates system.

Digital Certificates have allowed us to:

  • Transform our certificate-issuing process
  • Reduce our production time
  • Increase the efficiency of our team
  • Increase our level of security and protection against the risk of fraud
  • Enhance our reputation with customers and learners
  • Issue Digital Awarding Documents to learners

The system has enabled our learners to take complete control of their award documents through online, self-service functionality. VERIfirst allows our learners and centres to view and share their certificates instantly from anywhere, enhancing the centre and learner’s experience of completing qualifications with Skillsfirst.”
