About Cadet Vocational Qualifications Organisation

CVQO is a UK-based educational charity that has been changing lives through vocational training and development since 2001.

CVQO provides opportunities for young people and adult volunteers to improve their prospects in education and work through vocational qualifications.

CVQO is accredited by Edexcel, the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and City & Guilds.

What we did for them

CVQO helps young cadets to gain invaluable academic qualifications, but was faced with falling income from trusts and foundations. IFC set out a two tiered strategy and helped CVQO to develop its income from grant-making agencies and to prepare for major donor fundraising.

As CVQO has developed its programmes and expanded its range of activity we have maintained our relationship with the organisation, researching new grant-makers and crafting high-level bids for challenging times.

CVQO is one of IFC’s most important clients where are providing a tailor-made service, working closely with staff and management over a number of years.
