Become a Centre

To be able to deliver FDQ qualifications your business will need to become an approved centre and gain qualification approval for the qualification(s) you wish to deliver. Achieving approved centre status means that you have all the necessary policies, procedures, systems and resources in place to assure the quality and integrity of the qualifications and programmes you provide to learners.

In theory any organisation can become a centre. You could be a large food business, a small learning provider, a college or a university. It doesn’t matter, as long as you have the right elements in place to meet the FDQ approved centre criteria.

Of course, meeting approved centre criteria requires certain resources, rigorous processes and expertise. Before you embark on the approval process you may want to speak to us to gain a little more information, please feel free to call on 0113 859 1266 as we would be delighted to assist.
