We have a long-standing relationship with FAB, having been thrilled to contribute to a number of their external events and discussions to support training providers, employers and individuals get the most out of learning and development programmes.

Now, as a Platinum Partner, we will be working even closer with a collective of industry-leading awarding bodies and development specialists to share our voice on the future of regulated training that will aid skills, provide flexibility and enhance jobs.

Tom Bewick, Chief Executive, Federation of Awarding Bodies added:

“The Federation is delighted to welcome SFJ Awards as a Platinum Partner. They will be joining a handful of other leading awarding and assessment organisations in the UK that are pioneering the future of workforce skills. With an unrivalled commitment to quality and placing the learner and employer at the centre of everything we do, SFJ Awards will be at the heart of the big strategic conversations — leading on FAB’s new twenty-first century professionalisation and skills 4.0 initiative. Working closely with government, regulators and stakeholders, this includes shaping the future of education and skills policy; particularly as we recover from the worst pandemic in a century and prepare people for some very different job roles in future.”

As a Platinum Partner, our Managing Director, Candace Miller, and our leading qualifications team will be invited to contribute to a range of initiatives and events, as well as support FAB to influence key decision makers in the higher education arena, with a focus on vocational qualifications and assessments. We believe it’s vitally important to shine a light on the needs and wants for individuals, employers, and training providers and as a Platinum Partner, we will be able to have the voices of our centres and our centres’ learners truly heard.

Candace added:

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be joining a prestigious group of organisations by becoming a Platinum Partner with the Federation of Awarding Bodies. Our close working relationship with industry-leaders associated with FAB ensures that we can contribute collectively to the ongoing development of qualifications and improvement of learning outcomes that will continue to benefit employers, individuals, and training providers into the future.

Having worked closely with FAB for a number of years, this partnership further endorses the fantastic work that can be achieved through a collaborative approach to growing and diversifying the UK qualifications landscape.”

We look forward to sharing even more insights with our centres and customers about the ongoing development of the awarding and assessment industry, providing support for the provision of high-quality qualifications and assessments.
