As an Ofqual recognised Awarding Organisation, we pride ourselves on driving up standards in education through provision of regulated qualifications that are listed on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).
In addition, Qualifi recognises the need for quality accredited industry award programmes; training and award certifications that still demonstrate attainment, skills, knowledge or understanding that might not necessarily lend themselves to the regulated environment. This is where we can offer endorsed courses.
An endorsed course is a course which Qualifi has evaluated and endorsed as a suitable and beneficial learning platform for learners.
When Qualifi endorses a course of learning, we are declaring that we have confidence in a centre’s ability to develop and deliver quality courses in their areas of expertise.
Whilst we don’t always define the content of these courses, we do monitor the delivery and the assessments. The Qualifi endorsement status shows that centres are consistently meeting the high standards that we demand from our Recognised Centres in delivering a high quality learning experience for the learner which provides them with the necessary skills and knowledge in a particular subject area.
Below is a breakdown of what you can expect when opting for the endorsed course option with Qualifi.
It is important that users of qualifications – centres, learners, employers, colleges and universities – can be confident in the certificate that they are presented with and that they understand what it represents.
As an Awarding Organisation, Qualifi have a responsibility to learners to make sure we do everything we can to help them navigate the sector and make informed choices.
Education is a heavily regulated sector. One of the regulatory requirements that we have to meet as Ofqual regulated Awarding Organisation is centred around making sure that learners ‘know what they are getting’ in terms of the products we provide.
This knowledge extends to making sure that centres are marketing regulated qualifications and endorsed courses clearly and correctly. You will need to ensure that all of your learners know the difference between regulated and endorsed provision and know which of these they are working towards.
