STUDYING OUR QUALIFICATIONS
What are RQF Qualifications?
Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF) qualifications are regulated training programmes which are given a level between Entry Level and Level 8. These qualifications are made up of units and each unit has both a level and credit value. At each level there are three types of qualifications based on the number of credits: Awards (1-12 credits), Certificates (13-36 credits), and Diplomas (37+ credits)
What are FQP Qualifications?
Our Focus on Quality Provision (FQP) Scheme provides Quality Assurance to a training providers’ bespoke, or CPD, qualifications. Qualifications endorsed under the FQP Scheme are not nationally recognised, and therefore do not accrue credits on the RQF. However, successful completion of an FQP endorsed qualification will result in a ‘Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement’ being awarded which will specify the subject matter that has been studied.
If your certificate has been lost or damaged, please complete the Replacement Certificate Form in full and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively, you can post it to us at: Silicon House, Farfield Park, Manvers, Rotherham, South Yorkshire, S63 5DB.
If you are unhappy with a Focus Awards Centre, please follow their complaints procedure in the first instance. If you have exhausted this process and are still not happy, or if you do not receive a response, please contact us and we will investigate.
