Description

The Financial Services and Markets Act

Finance is key to economic development. It provides an investment basis and supports the flow of income and expenses. A country’s financial sector transforms its economic savings into investments. An efficient financial sector does not just accomplish that, but also encourages savings and increased investment.

Eventually, it results in increased income levels, and faster economic growth of the country. The financial sector also provides money and methods of payments to support the exchange of economic goods and services. However, financial regulation is key to the efficient functioning of the financial sector.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

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.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

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.
