We deliver various regulated/accredited first aid training in London and surrounding area. All first aid training courses that we offer are Ofqual Regulated Qualifications. OFQUAL or The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation is a non-ministerial government department that regulates qualifications, exams and tests in England. Ofqual recognises awarding organisations and only recognised awarding organisations can offer regulated qualifications. In this way Ofqual makes sure only those organisations that have the appropriate resources, capability and expertise can award regulated qualifications.
What is an Awarding Body? An awarding body is an organisation that is regulated by Ofqual to develop, design and certify qualifications. They are charged with implementing the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and quality assurance of qualifications.
On 1st October 2013 the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) introduced new regulations that require employers to carry out due diligence (investigations) on their first aid training provider in order to ensure that the training meets the necessary standards. By offering accredited/regulated courses, we have reduced the burden on the employers with need to undertake any due diligence if their first aiders undertake regulated first aid qualifications. This is because regulated qualifications are accredited by an Awarding Organisation, which means that both the training provider and the qualifications have already been verified as meeting the required standards.
London First Aid Training are accredited/registered with the following Awarding Organisations: Qualsafe Awards, QNUK and Highfield Awards and are proud to offer regulated first aid qualifications. This is the assurance we offer.To find out if an organisation is registered as an Awarding Body/organisation with Ofqual, please go to https://register.ofqual.gov.uk/.
