Full membership of the Federation of Awarding Bodies
Full membership is for awarding and/or assessment organisations that are regulated by one of the public regulators governing qualifications in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland (i.e. Ofqual, SQA, Qualifications Wales and CCEA). By joining the Federation, you become part of a powerful industry association. Together we will realise our vision of a world in which higher-quality technical, professional and vocational education, results in stronger public confidence and economic growth.
Benefits of full membership
Membership feesThe membership fee for all awarding organisations, whether full or associate members is:
- Band 1 (up to 2,000 certifications per year) £1,330 per year
- Band 2 (2,000 - 10,000 certifications per year) £1,785 per year
- Band 3 (10,000 - 50,000 certifications per year) £2,600 per year
- Band 4 (over 50,000 certifications per year) £4,445 per year
Vocational certifications are determined by what they are not – they do not include GCSEs, A-levels, IGCSEs, International Advanced levels, Scottish National qualifications. This is because FAB does not represent members in relation to these qualifications.
Training programmes kite-marked by the member would not be included as these are not assessed by the member. Qualifications offered as part of an Apprenticeship would count.
