About Our Ofqual Accredited Courses

The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England. They maintain standards and confidence in qualifications in England and are independent of government and report directly to Parliament. Ofqual was set up in April 2010 under the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 and is also covered by the Education Act 2011

RQF and Ofqual

RQF stands for Regulated Qualifications Framework and is the framework that all CIBTAC qualifications are entered into. The RQF is a regulated framework overseen by Ofqual and is intended to provide a standardised approach to qualification development and provision that is controlled and measurable.

Qualifications are arranged by level, in terms of degree of challenge to the learner, and size, which is calculated in hours and shown by the designations ‘Award’, ‘Certificate’ or ‘Diploma’.

By being on this framework all qualifications are subject to standards and requirements set by Ofqual that are applied to all regulated Awarding Organisations. This means there is a process available for individuals such as centres or candidates, to compare and measure a qualification from one Awarding Organisation, to another. If government funding in England is available for a program of study the relevant qualification would be on a framework, such as the RQF.
