About Us

Established in 2013, Training Qualifications UK is the most creative and contemporary Awarding Organisation in the UK: there, we said it.

Priding ourselves on being flexible, and adapting our services to suit each individual is our bread and butter.

This is Us

Training Qualifications UK creates opportunities for people.

Everything that we do is done with that in mind: designing qualifications that pop out from the crowd and give people skills and knowledge to do the same. Those who take our qualifications see real change in their lives, careers and personal outlooks.

We champion innovation, creativity, flexibility and dynamism in the approaches that those who deliver training and assessment to learners use. We always listen and believe in saying ‘yes’ as often as we can. We just happen to be an Awarding Organisation.

It doesn’t sound that exciting, but that’s because we’re here to help others do what they do best, not tell them how to do it. Our qualifications are just the start for our centres and their learners, and we develop them with the end game in mind. We’ve been humbled by the faith that our customers have put into us since our Ofqual approval in September 2013 and remain committed to repaying that commitment through constant improvement and delivery of the very best products and services that we can provide.

We’re also delighted that new customers are choosing to work with us on a daily basis. We don’t take this for granted, and we take our responsibilities to our Recognised Centres seriously. We’re developing systems, pioneering change and working with experts across the awarding and apprenticeship sectors.

We work all year round to refine and improve our portfolio and find ways to offer the best value for money. We’re proud to be the only vocational Awarding Organisation in Manchester.

Welcome to awarding with a difference. Welcome to refreshing. Welcome to the revolution.

Welcome to Training Qualifications UK.

If you’re new to Training Qualifications UK, welcome, we hope you find what you’re looking for on our site, if not, you can always get in touch using our contact forms.
