You have two distinct and separate types of qualification to choose from – Regulated Qualifications (RQF) and Non-Regulated Qualifications (FQP). They differ in several ways, and the following descriptions of each help you decide which you need or want to study.
RQF (Regulated Qualification Framework) Qualifications result from successful completion of training programmes set at a level between Entry Level (Level 1) and Level 8. They are made up of units, each of which has both a level and a credit value. For each level there are three types of qualification based on the number of credits allocated: Awards (1-12 credits), Certificates (13-36 credits), and Diplomas (37+ credits).
Our Focus on Quality Provision (FQP) Scheme provides Quality Assurance to a training providers’ specialist bespoke, or CPD, qualifications. Qualifications endorsed under the FQP Scheme are not nationally recognised, so do not accrue credits on the RQF. Successful completion of an FQP endorsed qualification results in the issue and presentation of a ‘Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement’ that details the precise subject matter studied.
