We draw a distinction between Training Qualifications and educational qualifications. A trainer may hold a doctoral qualification (Level 8 or D level) but that may not be a qualification that equips them to train. Equally they may hold a qualification as, for example, a radio producer but not be able to demonstrate an ability to train.
