Awarding Bodies

We at CT Learning take pride in the workplace training courses we offer. Our dedicated team of trainers work to teach you content that is approved by the respective awarding bodies. This ensures that the workplace training courses we teach and the qualifications you gain remain compliant and up to date. It also provides a guarantee that you are learning the most current techniques and best practices for workplace safety.

Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual)

Adult Learning in the UK is overseen by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual). This is a non-ministerial government department that regulates qualifications, exams and tests in England and vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland. It is their duty to ensure all learners get the results they deserve and that your qualifications are correctly valued and understood, now and in the future. 

Being recognised by Ofqual means that we, as a training provider, maintain the national standards in each subject from year to year.


Keeping workplaces compliant with regulatory requirements, we offer courses recognised or accredited by the following awarding bodies:
