ASIQUAL

Below is a brief summary of the benefits of the ASIQUAL Validation Certification scheme.  Students and employees are now able to gain formal recognition of the new skills, knowledge and competencies they have gained.

ASIQUAL Validation involves a thorough review of the course content, delivery systems, and quality assurance arrangements.  The course is then benchmarked against the FHEQ (Framework for Higher Education - UK)  and EQF (European Qualification Framework) systems and assigned a benchmarked level and credit value, where applicable, to provide students with information about the level of difficulty and size of their course of study. 

Students Please Note:  ASIQUAL advises students wishing to use ASIQUAL Validated Awards for progression to other areas of study or the workplace, to check the acceptability of these awards with the institution or employer prior to study.

FAQs  

1. Is my validated award accepted by other educational institutions, employers, immigration authorities or official bodies?
Unless specifically stated, ASIQUAL Validated Awards are not automatically accepted by other educational institutions, employers, immigration authorities or official bodies etc for progression.    

ASIQUAL Validation instead is a method by which employers, institutions and official bodies can gain an idea of the level and depth of study a student has undertaken.  By benchmarking these awards to a commonly recognised framework, validation allows interested parties to gain a better understanding of the type of study a student has undertaken.  


2. Who is the certificate awarded by?
ASIQUAL Validated Award certificates are produced by ASIQUAL in partnership with the awarding institution.  These will bear both the ASIQUAL logo and that of the institution/ organisation.  This certificate confirms the level and general credit value that ASIQUAL has benchmarked that particular award at.  

3. What does the level assigned to the ASIQUAL Validated Award mean? 
As part of its Validation process, ASIQUAL benchmarks the course against the levels of the FHEQ, the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications in the UK and the EQF, the European Qualifications Framework.  This is an indication to interested parties of the approximate level of study the student has undertaken.  For example, an award benchmarked at FHEQ Level 5 - 10 credits, would indicate that the student has been working at a level equivalent to that of second year degree level.   It is important to note that this does not mean that the student has completed what is equivalent to the second year of a degree; but rather that this represents the difficulty level of the course.  To understand the size of the award it is important to consider the credit value.  The award in question only represents an equivalent credit value of 10 credits, representing 100 hours of study; much less than that of a full year of degree study.

4. What does the credit value of the ASIQUAL Validated Award mean and can I use these credits towards further study?
The assignment of a credit value to the ASIQUAL Validated awards is intended to signal to interested parties the approximate size of the course the student has undertaken and the depth of study at that particular level.  ASIQUAL uses the system of credits which is common across several qualification systems whereby 1 credit equates to roughly 10 hours of study.   The assignment of a credit value is part of the ASIQUAL benchmarking of the award against other qualification systems.  
Unless specifically stated these credits are not accepted by other credit based qualification systems.

 5. What wording will appear on student certificates?For courses benchmarked at university undergraduate level and above:
"This is to certify that STUDENT NAME has achieved NAME OF COURSE from NAME OF CENTRE. The course measures learning outcomes that have been benchmarked against the European Qualification Framework at Level X, comprising XX total learning hours, comparable to the UK Framework for Higher Education Qualifications Level X, XX credits."  

For courses benchmarked below university undergraduate level:
" This is to certify that STUDENT NAME has achieved NAME OF COURSE from NAME OF CENTRE. The course measures learning outcomes that have been benchmarked against the European Qualification Framework at Level X, comprising XX total learning hours." 

Regarding ASIQUAL  
ASIQUAL is a UK based awarding body offering qualifications which recognise both students’ academic achievements and evidenced skills.  

Validation Awards - what does this mean?  
Validation recognises the specialised courses developed by centres in order to meet the specific needs of students, employers and educators.   This is also useful for companies who choose to develop their own specialised training programmes, which meet the needs of their business and provide the targeted industry skills needed for employee progression. Through ASIQUAL Validated Awards certification, students and employees can gain formal recognition of the new skills, knowledge and competence they have gained.  

ASIQUAL Validation involves a thorough review of the course content, delivery systems, and quality assurance arrangements.  The course is then benchmarked against the FHEQ and EQF qualification systems and assigned a benchmarked level and credit value, where applicable, to provide students with information about the level of difficulty and size of their course of study.  

Students Please Note:  ASIQUAL advises students wishing to use ASIQUAL Validated Awards for progression to other areas of study or the workplace, to check the acceptability of these awards with the institution or employer prior to study.
