An endorsed award is a nationally recognised academic or vocational qualification issued by an Ofqual regulated Awarding Organisation that’s examined online in accordance with Ofqual rules. A listed qualification, rather than being listed directly by the Awarding Organisation is included in a database of listed qualifications at Ofqual making it potentially eligible for funding. According to current Ofqual rules, listed qualifications must be tested in invigilated environment, typically an assessment centre. Both approaches typically share the same syllabus, content and similar QA processes, but due to the online exam option, endorsed awards now represent the majority of fully accredited training and are suitable for skills training, compliance purposes, staff development and career building.
