Each month we are adding a “top tip” to help you make best use of VQManager’s functions. Just click on the relevant document for all the information you need.
#3 January 2023 – Progression Tracker
In addition to reporting a learner’s progress, VQManager can track knowledge, skills and behaviour improvements for the learner from the start of the qualification until the end?
You can also show ‘value added’ as the learner works through their qualification. The function allows learners, assessors and line managers (employers) to show a ‘rating’ against each criterion in either a standard or qualification to show progress.
The “Progression tracker” tab is in the Reports area and is visible for all users and the evaluations are initiated and completed on an ad hoc basis, with the assessor deciding how many to do and when.
Learners, Assessors and Line Managers can contribute to the evaluation.

#2 December 2022 – OTJ Hours
There are some rules in respect of Off the Job hours which may affect the total number of hours being reported. For the hours to count – they MUST:
- Fall within the start date and end dates of any qualification they are doing- i.e. if they are doing a framework, the earliest start date and the latest end date for any of those qualifications. These are set up in the User profile by the Centre Admin
- Be confirmed by the assessor.
- Have a date of activity logged in the activity log field, hours won’t count if they are logged in an Activity Log entry and the ‘Actual date’ field is left blank.
If you think insufficient hours are being included for any learner, please check all of the above criteria is being met.
