Policies and Procedures

EQL is an awarding body recognised and regulated by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) in England, SQA Accreditation in Scotland, Qualifications Wales (QW) and the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland.

As an awarding organisation we have specific responsibilities. To ensure we maintain our awarding status with the regulators and continue to be able to develop, deliver and award fit-for-purpose qualifications for the equestrian industry, we are required to maintain compliance with a range of regulations, predominantly through the Ofqual General Conditions of Recognition (2011) and the SQA Accreditation Regulatory Principles (2014).

Our policy statements and related procedures are designed to support our continued compliance and ensure ethical practice.
