Associate Member Application

Associate membership is available to awarding bodies and end-point assessment organisations that have their status conferred by a public authority (e.g. Privy Council, QAA, ESFA). This includes organisations outside the UK that have their status conferred by public authorities in the countries in which they operate, e.g. NSDC in India. By joining the Federation, you become part of a powerful industry association. Together we will realise our vision of a world in which higher-quality technical, professional and vocational education, results in stronger public confidence and economic growth.
