Removal of QCF and NQF

In October 2015 Ofqual introduced a simple, descriptive framework, the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) to replace the QCF (Qualifications and Credit Framework) and the NQF (National Qualification Framework).

The RQF includes all qualifications Ofqual regulates.

As an IMI Approved Centre this means little change for you at present, as existing qualifications will remain the same.  However it is important for centres to be aware that references to the QCF (Qualifications and Credit Framework) must be removed from all centre produced documentation, marketing materials and websites etc by December 2017. The term QCF will also be removed from all IMI produced materials and its systems over the coming months.

If you have any queries regarding this transition please email qualsdevelopment@theimi.org.uk, or call 01992 511521.
