This qualification is part of the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF), which became fully operational in September 2010. Qualifications within the framework are made up of units and each unit is given a credit value, where one credit represents 10 hours of learning time. The title of every qualification within the new framework will contain details of the size (award/certificate/diploma), level of difficulty (Entry to level 8) and general content of the qualification. This qualification is competence based, as it is deemed to include all the relevant knowledge and skills for a level 3 payroll administrator. Learners studying without being attached to an IAB accredited training centre, should contact the IAB for further information.
There are no formal entry requirements for the IAB Level 3 Diploma in Payroll (QCF). However, it is recommended that before commencing a course leading to this qualification, the prospective learner will already have basic skills in numeracy, information technology and literacy and experience of payroll to at least level 2 using a standard computerised payroll package. The successful completion of the IAB Level 2 Certificate in Payroll (QCF) would be an ideal qualification to allow progression to the Level 3 Diploma in Payroll (QCF).
