    About QCF Qualifications
    Achieving a regulated qualification is exactly that: an achievement. One you can be proud of and one that you and other people can be sure is proof that you have demonstrated a certain standard and level of knowledge and competence in your chosen subject. These qualifications are awarded by organisations which have been approved by an independent regulator, Ofqual. In order to meet the requirements for ongoing approval, these organisations must consistently demonstrate the highest standards of quality assurance in the design and delivery of all of their qualifications.

    All qualifications offered by a regulated organisation sit on the Ofqual register. Each qualification, as it is entered onto the register, is assigned to a specific Subject Sector Area (SSA), which makes it easy to find other regulated qualifications that build upon or compliment your learning. Simple searches on the Ofqual register (found at www.ofqual.gov.uk), using the advanced search options can provide you with a list of qualifications falling into a specific SSA.

    The QCF is designed to help facilitate the recognition of prior learning so that you don’t have to repeat learning or assessment that you’ve already completed. If you find a qualification that you want to take, but believe that you are able to provide evidence that you have already met some or all of the learning outcomes for a unit, you can apply to the relevant warding organisation for Recognition of Prior Learning. This means it may be possible to award you some of the credit needed to complete the qualification without you having to repeat learning.
