Training Qualifications UK has always been on the cutting edge of qualification development. Every year, we work with amazing employers, centres and other organisations to create quality, in-demand qualifications.
Do you have a course of learning which you would like to develop into a regulated qualiﬁcation?
Our Qualifications team has a wealth of experience in forming regulated qualifications from nothing more than an idea and brief outline of the assessment criteria. But the more information you can provide to develop your qualification, the quicker we can turn around a development.
We will work collaboratively with you when developing our qualifications, bringing your skills, knowledge and ideas to life. Utilising our expertise, we consult with you on your qualification development journey, whether that is based on industry knowledge, LEP Priority areas or skills shortages across your workforce.
If you have a fresh new idea, please get in touch with the Qualifications team to get the ball rolling.

What is a regulated qualification?
There can be much value added to a course of learning by having it placed on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). Qualifications on the RQF will be recognised nationally and internationally by educational institutions and employers, for listing on the RQF implies certain standards of development and implementation have been met.
Responsibility for the qualification
Training Qualifications UK will retain responsibility for any developed qualification once it has been entered onto the Ofqual register of regulated qualifications. Therefore TQUK will own the intellectual property rights for that qualification and unfortunately this is something which cannot be avoided.
This applies only to the content within the qualification itself and NOT to any training materials, PowerPoints or assessments that you may have provided to aid the development process. Any resources of this description will remain the property of your centre and will not be published by Training Qualifications UK.
Training Qualifications UK endeavours to complete all qualification developments as soon as possible but the minimum time frame is six months. This can be dependent on a variety of factors including the number of redrafts and alterations and the level of detail initially formatted and submitted to TQUK.
Once the development process has been finalised and you are happy with the qualification, you will be required to sign the final agreement before a qualification goes on the Ofqual Register.
Applying for funding
Whilst Training Qualifications UK can of course look to get funding allocated and assigned to your qualification development with us at your request, the responsibility and timescales involved rest firmly with the Education and Skills Funding Agency once we have submitted the application for funding. Training Qualifications UK cannot guarantee funding.
The process usually takes a couple of months after the qualification has been finalised and we have submitted an application. For more information on funding and the processes involved, please visit the ESFA website.
