Qualifications Explained


Regulated Qualifications

Our regulated qualifications are qualifications that are reviewed, recognised and monitored by Ofqual. All qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual are clearly displayed on the page.

Non-regulated Qualifications

Our non-regulated qualifications are certificated by RLSS UK and are not to be confused with qualifications regulated by Ofqual. All our non-regulated qualifications, certificated by RLSS UK, are held to high standards and offer industry leading skills.

If you’re unsure whether your qualification is Ofqual regulated or certificated by RLSS UK, please contact customer services on 0300 3230 096 and they will be able to help you with your query.
