Qualifications: level 2 to level 4 - below 15 credits

List of QCF qualifications from level 2 to 4, approved for funding for 2013 to 2014, but not approved for 2014 to 2015.

This publication was withdrawn on

In February 2014, the Skills Funding Agency published lists of qualifications that were approved in 2013/14 but were not approved in 2014/15.

The lists have now been removed due to the start of the next academic year 2014/15.

Awarding organisations can still submit a request for a qualification to be considered to be funded on a exceptional basis, as part of the monthly approvals process, where the qualification meets the exception criteria as set out in the Technical Guidance for Awarding Organisations.

This is a list of QCF qualifications from level 2 to 4 approved for funding for 2013 to 2014, but which do not meet the new size business rule of 15 credits for Level 2 to 4 qualifications, and are therefore not approved for 2014/15.

Awarding organisations may contact the Agency to request funding for a qualification below 15 credits by using the awarding organisation submission form.
