STUDYING OUR QUALIFICATIONS

What are RQF Qualifications?

RQF qualifications are regulated 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: Award (1-12 credits) Certificates (13-36 credits) Diplomas (37+ credits)

What are Non-Regulated Endorsed Qualifications?

Our Focus on Quality Provision (FQP) Scheme provides Quality Assurance to a trading providers’ bespoke or CPD and qualifications. Qualifications endorsed under the FQP Scheme are not nationally recognised, and therefore do not accrue credits on the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF). However, successful completion of an FQP endorsed qualification will result in a Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement being awarded. The certificate will specify what subject matter has been studied.
