Whether you’re new to the world of antiques or have some pre-existing knowledge, the fun, information-packed Antiquing Diploma Course provides a fascinating insight into the world of antiques. You’ll discover what antiques are and why they have value, the specifics of various types of antique furniture, ceramics, glass and other items, and how to identify, buy and sell antiques.

Introducing you to the course, we’ll consider what antiques are, what antiquing is and how to identify and select antiques. We’ll look at buying antiques online, at auction and elsewhere, and work out what prices you should buy at. We’ll also look at selling antiques online, at auction, in your own shop or a combination of these, and discuss how to build a client base and a brand.

We’ll explore the various types of antiques out there. We’ll start by focusing on time periods and styles of furniture, moving on to the types, marks, and identification of antique ceramics, and how to identify antique glass and silver. We’ll also take a look at other types of antiques, such as coins, jewellery, clocks, rugs and more.

The course concludes with a look at forgeries, reproductions, caring for antiques and tips on how to start an antiques business.

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.
