Information for:

Recognised QCF Organisations

Please note: The Register (http://register.ofqual.gov.uk) contains current up to date information regarding awarding organisations and the table below may now be out of date.

We have recognised the organisations listed on this page to operate within the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). In each case we have also indicated the regulated functions that the organisation concerned is approved to deliver.

Each of the organisations we have listed here has our approval to operate within the QCF. The capacity in which each one operates may differ. For example, some organisations will develop the individual units that are part of a qualification (unit submitter) and specify how those units fit together to make a qualification (rules of combination developer); whilst others (awarding organisations) have the authority to take the rules of combination and use them to create an actual qualification for us to approve and accredit.
