The responsibility for claiming certificates rests with the approved centre, namely the training organisation that facilitated your course. Once learners’ assessments are finalised and, if required, their achievements have undergone quality assurance, the centre should claim the certificates from The Qualification Hub.

Upon successful certificate claims, The Qualification Hub processes them within five working days, making the eCertificates accessible for the centre to download.

The Qualification Hub is an acknowledged awarding organisation in Northern Ireland. It doesn’t directly offer training courses. Instead, it boasts a network of approved centres that deliver its qualifications. If you’re interested in enrolling, it’s best to approach one of these approved centres directly.

An approved centre is a training organisation, which could be a college, school, university, commercial training provider, or work-based entity, that has earned the endorsement of The Qualification Hub to offer its qualifications.

This endorsement process is crafted to provide learners with confidence that The Qualification Hub is content with the organisation’s capabilities in terms of staff, systems, and procedures, ensuring a robust and quality learning journey.

The Qualification Hub actively monitors and supports these approved centres to guarantee the consistent upkeep of the requisite standards.

Our course fees are uniquely determined by each accredited training provider, ensuring you receive competitive and fair pricing that reflects the value and quality of your educational experience. Choose the path that best suits your needs and budget, all within TQH’s trusted network of providers.

The cost of courses affiliated with The Qualification Hub varies. Importantly, The Qualification Hub itself does not set or mandate pricing for the courses. Instead, each recognised centre – the training organisation delivering the course – independently determines its own fee structure. As a result, pricing can differ based on the centre, the location, the resources they provide, and other factors. If you’re interested in a specific course, it’s recommended to contact the respective approved centre directly for precise fee information.

The Qualification Hub qualifications are positioned on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and are co-regulated by England’s regulator, CCEA Regulations (including Northern Ireland), and Qualifications Wales.

  • European Alignment: In Europe, the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) aids in making RQF qualifications, including those from The Qualification Hub, more readable across member countries.
  • Global Prestige: UK qualifications are globally recognised. In places with mutual recognition agreements for exercise professionals, The Qualification Hub’s certificates are anticipated to gain acceptance.

CCEA Regulation, an autonomous segment of the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland (NI), plays a crucial role in upholding educational standards.

It focuses on the rigorous accreditation of qualifications, ensuring they meet established benchmarks. Beyond initial accreditation, it offers continuous oversight to ensure the enduring quality of these qualifications. Engaging closely with educational entities and examination groups, CCEA Regulation ensures uniform application of regulatory criteria. Its efforts maintain the integrity and international regard of qualifications offered in NI, complemented by its commitment to routinely monitor and refine these standards.

In essence, CCEA Regulation stands as the guardian of the quality and reputation of regulated qualifications in Northern Ireland.

The coursework should be assessed within 14 working days. The Qualification Hub recommends that approved centres promptly relay the results to learners after internal moderation*. Centres have the flexibility to communicate these results either informally (like through a verbal update) or formally (such as via letter or email).

During the centre approval process, the training organisation would have demonstrated to The Qualification Hub that it possesses a comprehensive complaints procedure. If you have concerns, it’s advisable to utilise this established procedure to inform the training organisation about your dissatisfaction regarding the course or the centre itself.

Approved centres have the flexibility in their mode of delivering The Qualification Hub qualifications, provided they adhere to The Qualification Hub’s standards. While some centres opt for traditional face-to-face methods, others offer courses via remote or distance learning. TQH can hep with this process. Additionally, many centres adopt a blended learning approach, merging both face-to-face and remote instruction.
