If you are already an awarding organisation
An existing awarding organisation may wish to offer additional specified qualifications or descriptions of qualifications, including where you wish to offer additional levels or Sector Subject Areas (SSAs). If you wish to do this, you will need to apply to increase the scope of your recognition, by completing the enquiry form here first.
We will review your enquiry and analyse what you wish to offer against our records to arrive at a decision as to what information, if any, we will require you to submit to allow us to assess your application against the Criteria for Recognition. We will write to you to inform you of our decision.
Saving your progress
You can save your progress and come back to complete your application later. The application will save all details up to the last page you have completed (it won't save the page you're currently on, so click 'Next' if you need to save details on the current page).
At the top of each page there is a link that will allow you to save your progress and you will be emailed a link to allow you to come back and complete the form later.
The information you provide will be held by us. It will only be used to process your application. We will treat your identity in confidence. Ofqual's online application process is handled by SmartSurvey.
Your information will be stored and processed by SmartSurvey, who are based in the UK. Your details will not be shared, sold or used for any other purpose.
Throughout this application form, all questions with an asterisk * must be answered.
