IWFM, and its qualifications, are regulated by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) - the body responsible for regulating qualifications, examinations and assessments in England.

Becoming recognised by Ofqual was a major undertaking, and maintaining recognition requires ongoing compliance with their regulations. The benefits of Ofqual recognition include:

  • fully regulated qualifications that provide a benchmark for the industry
  • qualification certificates that carry the Ofqual logo - a recognised quality mark
  • qualifications that are valued in the UK and internationally.

As a recognised Awarding Organisation, we design, develop and award qualifications that test knowledge, skills and understanding of FM.  And, because we consult employers in the development of our qualifications, we’re confident they’re fit for purpose. 

Our range of qualifications provide a world-leading framework for professional development in workplace and facilities management.
