We have been made aware by customers that several of our competitors are ill informed regarding the regulatory bodies and awarding organisations within the UK and are offering learners incorrect, conflicting and confusing information. To clarify for them and for you, OFQUAL are the regulatory body for qualifications within the UK. OFQUAL regulate the awarding organisations that offer the qualifications. Within the fitness industry there are several awarding organisations that offer fitness qualifications. They include: VTCT, YMCA Awards, NCFE, 1st4Sport, City & Guilds, Industry Qualifications, Pearsons to name a few. The awarding organisations have been established for different lengths of time. Awarding organisations are not regulatory bodies however will have their own quality assurance procedures and policies in place to ensure that training providers are delivering qualifications as they should be.
All the qualifications offered by PT Academy are regulated by OFQUAL.
