The Chartered Quality Institute surrenders Ofqual recognition

The Chartered Quality Institute (CQI) has surrendered its status as an Ofqual-recognised awarding organisation.

CQI informed Ofqual in December 2015 of its intention to surrender recognition. CQI has no outstanding learners for its regulated provision. The surrender took effect as of 14 December 2021. From this date, no qualifications offered by CQI are regulated by Ofqual.

CQI previously had 9 regulated qualifications and issued 27 certificates in the last academic year. We understand no learners are negatively impacted by this surrender.

When awarding organisations are considering surrendering their recognition, we stand ready to discuss the options for proceeding while ensuring learners are protected.

A full list of currently recognised awarding organisations and regulated qualifications can be found on the Register of Regulated Qualifications.
