We have placed special conditions on the Association of Certified Project Accountants for their QCF qualifications.

Ofqual has completed a review and these conditions are no longer in force.



Awarding organisation Issue Action taken Case status
Association of Certified Project Accountants (ACPA) Development, delivery and award of Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) qualifications Imposed special conditions (at recognition) Open

On 12 February 2013, we accepted ACPA’s application to be recognised for Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) qualifications.

At the same time, we decided to impose special conditions on ACPA. This is because:

  • ACPA is a new regulated awarding organisation and its processes and practices for the development, delivery and award of qualifications have not yet been implemented and tested
  • during the application process, ACPA identified a number of new ways of working and practices that they intend to implement following recognition
  • we want to make sure that ACPA’s processes and procedures, including the new ones introduced following recognition, are working as intended

We will keep these special conditions under review, and will remove them when they are no longer necessary.
