The CISI is recognised as an awarding body by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).
Ofqual is the independent education regulator for England. It gives formal recognition to organisations that deliver qualifications and monitors awarding organisation activities.
The assessments and qualifications regulated by Ofqual are collected into two separate frameworks:
- National Qualifications Framework (NQF)
- Qualifications & Credit Framework (QCF)
Further information on these frameworks is available here.
CISI qualifications are currently held on both frameworks although all will gradually be moved to the Qualifications & Credit Framework.
