Instructor Business Hint 11 – Regulated qualifications

14 January 2016 in Featured Articles

Approved Centre LogoIn most cases businesses do not require the courses you deliver to be a Regulated Qualification, occasionally they do especially where funding is available. In addition to the ProTrainings qualifications you offer, you can if necessary deliver a qualification that is Regulated through ProTrainings and Training Qualifications UK. If you do need to provide regulated qualifications you will need an additional level of approval and you need to be aware that there are additional rules for example you have to issue the certificates even if the customer has not paid you for your training. Some qualifications will also be more expensive.  If you are or wish to offer regulated qualifications you have to be careful with the wording used on your website.  Guidance is available from our compliance department.

A ‘Regulated Qualification’ is a qualification that is provided through an Awarding Organisation recognised and regulated by one of the UK Regulators (eg. Ofqual in England or SQA Accreditation in Scotland). The certificate of achievement awarded to successful learners will contain the logo of our chosen Awarding Organisation, Training Qualifications UK (“TQUK”), and the relevant UK Regulator along with the full qualification title and number.

The Awarding Organisations who offer regulated qualifications have to be recognised to do so by the relevant Regulator for each country in the UK and in doing so comply with various regulatory requirements. TQUK are approved to offer Regulated qualifications by both Ofqual and SQA Accreditation.

If you have any questions or would like to become a ProTrainings centre, please contact us by email on, phone on 01206 805359 or use our online chat from most of our websites.
