Open College Network West Midlands Centres: Lifetime learning for all

Qualification Approval

Approval to Deliver an Open College Network Qualification:
Delivering a new qualification with Open College Network West Midlands is a straightforward and supported process.  There is a simple approval process to complete:
Existing Recognised Centre?
Please familiarise yourself with the associated qualification guide(s) to ensure that your centre can provide the evidence that demonstrates your organisation can meet the specified requirements. This includes requirements to teach, assess and internally quality assure the qualification. 
More information can be obtained from our Qualification Approval Policy and Process and of course, please contact your Business Development Manager with any questions you may have.
Once you have gained approval to deliver a qualification, the next step is to create your new course(s) so that you can register your learners.  Please refer to our 'Creating New Courses' page for guidance on how to do this.
New Customer?
For organisations wanting to become an Open College Network West Midlands approved Centre, simply complete and submit our Centre Recognition Application form.  Our Becoming a Centre page provides guidance on how to do this.
Where we can, we will approve all qualifications required at the outset as part of our Centre Recognition process.
Additional/New Centre Staff Application Form
Please complete the Additional/New Centre Staff Application Form to inform us of any changes at your centre in regards to delivering, assessing and internally quality assuring the qualifications/courses that you have been approved to deliver at your centre. Please send the completed form(s) to
