Approval process for delivering Technical Qualifications

  1. If your centre isn’t already approved to offer City & Guilds qualifications, products and services, you’ll need to complete a Centre Approval (CAP) Form, which includes one qualification approval.
  2. If you are already an approved City & Guilds centre, you’ll need to complete a Qualification Approval (QAP) Form for the specific Technical Qualification you want to deliver.
  3. You’ll also need to complete a Quality Statement to deliver Workplace Skills.
  4. We’ll visit your centre as part of the approval process, and give you tailored support on how to deliver City & Guilds TechBac.

Please note that centres that have approval for a Level 3 Technical Qualification are automatically approved to deliver the equivalent Key Stage 5 Level 2 Technical Qualification. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact our Technical Support team on 01924 206 719 and/or
