Q: Will my qualification be recognised internationally?

A: YMCA Awards is not only the UK’s leading awarding body, but is fast gaining recognition and respect across the World. YMCA Awards has centres based in a number of European and Middle Eastern countries plus India and South Africa.

Gaining a YMCA Awards approved fitness qualification enables individuals to join the UK Register of Exercise Professionals, opening up job opportunities in the UK and, through the International Confederation of Registers for Exercise Professionals (ICREPs), Australia and New Zealand.

Active IQ qualifications are on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) which is jointly regulated by England’s regulator Ofqual, Wales’ DCELLS and Northern Ireland’s CCEA. So Active IQ qualifications are recognised in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Scotland has its own framework, the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). Although they are not on the SCQF Active IQ qualifications are widely respected by learners, training organisations and employers in Scotland.

In Europe,the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) acts as a translation device to make national qualifications more readable across Europe. This comparison chart shows how, by QCF level, Active IQ qualifications are recognised in Europe. Although there is currently no international mechanism to compare QCF qualifications in this way, UK qualifications are well-regarded all over the world.
