What is an Awarding body?
Awarding bodies, awarding organisations and exam boards are all terms used to describe an organisation that develops, designs, and awards qualifications. These qualifications offer knowledge and skills measured by an assessment and quality assurance process. Awarding bodies are strictly regulated to ensure that the resources and qualifications they approve are to the highest standard. Ascentis are proud to be one of the UK’s top awarding bodies, offering our expertise in developing qualifications, to meet the needs of the employers and learners undertaking them.
