CIEH qualifications tick all the right boxes
CIEH qualifications are developed in line with rigorous quality assurance procedures and are regulated by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulators (Ofqual). Ofqual is a government body that ensures that all awarding bodies (like the CIEH) meet specified standards and rules when designing qualifications. We take this very seriously to ensure that you receive the best possible training available.
Additionally, all CIEH curricula adhere to current legal requirements (UK, EU and CODEX) and uphold best practice standards recommended by various professional and trade bodies so you can rest assured that your qualification will be relevant in the workplace.
Some CIEH courses are also on the Qualifications and Credits Framework (QCF) and the National Qualification Framework* (NQF) so you can look at CIEH qualifications as stepping stones towards your future studies. The QCF means that you can use credits from our courses to contribute to other Awards, Certificates and Diplomas, including National Vocational Qualifications.
*The NQF is for England, Wales and Northern Ireland only
