Increasingly, Regulators look for evidence that the company reviews its own processes and controls to ensure that, for example:

  • Policies and procedures are actually being followed by operational staff
  • Processes are not "shelfware" (i.e., policy exists but "never comes off the shelf")
  • A strong risk management function has not deteriorated into ineffectiveness
  • There is clear ownership and accountability for compliance throughout the supply chain

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
