Course Level GQA Level4
this qualification is available in
Northern Ireland
who is this qualification for?

This qualification is at Level 4, although some units may be at different levels. Level 4 qualifications are primarily aimed
at those who are fully trained and experienced in a wide range of roles that involve decision making. This qualification is
aimed at those who have the responsibility and/or opportunity for providing leadership
in a print working environment.
Candidates will require knowledge of health and safety and environmental issues in the print industry along with the
need to understand the importance of keeping skills and knowledge current. The qualification has been written in a way
that will require the candidate to also prove knowledge of technical matters, quality checks and the legal and commercial
aspects of the print industry. Candidates will also need to be able to identify potential for improvements in working
practices and procedures of themselves, individuals, departments and processes and procedures.
Candidates may also take on a supervisory role, particularly in relation to less-experienced colleagues. There is a suite of
qualifications available to cover a wide range of roles in operational and administrative roles within the print industry at
Level 2 and Level 3.
Due to the wide range of job roles and the diverse nature of organisations in the print industry it is difficult to give a
definitive list of job roles the qualification may be appropriate for. The qualification is not restricted to those with
managerial responsibility but candidates must ensure they will have the opportunity to produce the required evidence.
Some possible examples of job titles are shown below:
• General Manager • Operations Manager
• Department Process Manager • Supervisor
• Team Leader • No. 1 Printer
• Production Coordinator • Line Manager
