Interested in Platform 3?


Although The Communication Trust worked with City & Guilds to develop the Award and write the supporting materials, we are not a training provider.

We have been working closely with training providers who are offering the Award using Platform 3 either entirely online or as a blended approach.

A full list of the training providers who offer Platform 3 and links to their websites can be found on the Interested in Platform 3? page.

The application process and cost for each provider will vary so please contact the training provider directly to find out how to apply and get started with your qualification.

For further information about completing the Award through Platform 3, please download our FAQ's document.
