Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF)
These units can be taken on their own, or combined towards achieving three different accountancy qualifications, and ultimately, the AIA Professional Accountancy Qualification:
- AIA Level 5 Certificate in Accountancy (QCF)
- AIA Level 6 Diploma in Accountancy (QCF)
- AIA Level 7 Diploma in Professional Accountancy (QCF)
WHAT IS THE QCF?
The QCF is the new framework for creating and accrediting qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Ofqual, together with its partner regulators in Wales (DCELLS) and Northern Ireland (CCEA), is responsible for regulation of the QCF.
The QCF gives a wider range of learners the opportunity to get the qualifications they need, in a way that suits them. QCF qualifications are designed with the help of employers so you can be assured that you’re gaining skills that employers are looking for.
AIA & THE QCF
AIA’s recognition application for the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) was approved by Ofqual’s Regulators’ Recognition and Accreditation Group (RRAG) at their meeting in November 2010.
This was the second and final stage of our application to operate within the QCF, building on our achievement of Awarding Body status on 1 February 2010. This recognition offers another guarantee that AIA members are being trained to the highest levels. AIA was the first Recognised Qualifying Body (RQB) to be recognised under the provision of the QCF.
As an Awarding Body, certificates for AIA's qualifications under the QCF will be issued with the logos of Ofqual, Welsh Assembly Government and the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA).
