“I joined the e-Careers AWS Career Academy programme after a demo lab session by champion instructor Andrew Bel-Dean. I have to say the whole experience was above my expectations. The sessions and revision sessions were absolutely priceless. The community support from mentors to fellow learners was full of energy, fun, support, and learning.

I have passed my Certified Cloud Practitioner & Certified Solutions Architect - Associate exams and I can proudly say if I can do it anybody can do it.”

For the entire experience, from on-boarding to passing my exams confidently, they have been nothing but amazing!

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.
