Compliance with the ‘General Conditions of Recognition’, and special conditions H7, D5.3, A9 and G5.2 Withdrawal of recognition (effective from 22nd July 2014) Closed

From Tuesday 22 July 2014, Accrediting and Assessment Bureau for Post-Secondary Schools (AABPS) will no longer be able to offer or award regulated qualifications. This means that existing students are not able to continue their regulated qualification with AABPS and will need to transfer to another awarding organisation to continue their regulated qualification.

AABPS requested an independent review of our decision to withdraw recognition. That review has now been completed and confirmed our decision to withdraw AABPS’ recognition.

This decision notice explains why we chose to withdraw AABPS’ recognition.
