Parnassus is a portal-style awarding organisation management system which fully embraces QCF whilst still supporting NQF and non-accredited qualifications.

Parnassus supports the core business functions of an awarding organisation: qualification management, register of centres, learner registration, entry of achievement through to certification. Customers can also purchase optional additional modules to support exams management, finance and links to eAssessment, LRS/PLR and other systems.

Parnassus is a portal-style solution, which can be hosted on a web server or installed on an awarding organisation’s internal servers. As a portal, Parnassus can be used by internal staff and any function can also be made available to centres, EV’s, examiners and other external users – even learners.
