AIM Awards (AIM)
||Development, delivery and award of ESOL qualifications
||Imposed special conditions (at recognition)
AIM has been a recognised awarding organisations since November 2010. On 6 August 2014, we accepted AIM’s application to be recognised for English for speakers of other languages (‘ESOL’) qualifications.
At the same time, we decided to impose special conditions on AIM for its new ESOL qualifications. This is because:
- AIM has not previously offered regulated ESOL qualifications
- AIM is proposing to deliver its new ESOL qualifications via a third party arrangement with another organisation
- AIM’s processes and procedures have not yet been implemented and tested
- we want to make sure that AIM’s proposed new processes and procedures, including the arrangement with the other organisation, are working as intended
We will keep these special conditions under review, and will remove them when they are no longer necessary.
