What is an Awarding Organisation or Awarding Body?

An awarding body is a specialist organisation that designs and delivers qualifications, certifications, diplomas, and awards. The awarding organisation does not provide the training programme themselves. Instead, they monitor ways in which qualifications are being delivered and assessed by training providers.
