GET INVOLVED IN THE INTEGRATED QUALIFICATIONS SYSTEM (IQS)
Are you a representative of a professional organisation, an association or a sports union?
Get involved in designing standards for market qualifications.
The IQS gives you an opportunity to describe and systematize the qualifications thatmeet the expectations of companies and employers. Each entity in the market cansubmit its proposals of market qualifications to be included in the IQS.
Do you provide training services and already issue certificates?
Perhaps you are an expert in your discipline and you believe that you could certify other experts?
Each entity conducting economic activities capable of ensuring the required organisational conditions can become an awarding body (AB), i.e. can be authorised to award market qualifications included in the Integrated Qualifications System (IQS).
Additionally, each such entity may describe a qualification and submit it for inclusion into the system. In the event the minister decides to include it in the IQS, you may become an awarding entity for this qualification.
Do you run a company which specialises in a given field?
In this case, you cansubmit qualifications which you have described for their inclusion in the system. Following community consultations, the ministers may decide to include them in the IQS.
Once the qualifications have been included in the system, you canapply to become an awarding body authorised to perform the validation process and award the qualification.
