British Qualifications, now in its 29th edition, is a comprehensive source of information on educational, professional, academic, technical and vocational qualifications in Britain. Despite the rapidly changing qualification scene, the book captures these important new developments in one volume. Completely updated to take into account of the latest changes in university status, it now lists degree-awarding colleges of further and higher education, as well as all of the universities. It also provides the latest information on vocational qualifications, including NVQs, GNVQs and SNVQs. British Qualifications continues to provide comprehensive coverage of over 200 career fields, their professional and accrediting bodies, levels of membership and qualifications. It also gives an index of designatory letters and abbreviations, a valuable guide to today's ever-increasing range of acronyms.
