Industry Qualifications (IQ)

About Industry Qualifications (IQ Awards)

In March 2020, Industry Qualifications (IQ) came under the ownership of SFJ Awards, the Awarding Organisation for high quality qualifications across key skills and sectors. As such, qualifications that were previously provided under IQ including specialist provision relevant to the security, aesthetic medicine and health and social care sectors are now delivered by the SFJ Awards team.

Former Industry Qualifications courses are now available from SFJ Awards, and we continue to review the suite of qualifications delivered in security, health, medicine and social care to ensure that we are supporting previously IQ Approved Centres to deliver the best learning outcomes for their learners.

Announced on the 9th of March 2020, SFJ Awards were thrilled to be able to continue supporting the qualifications in these vital sectors, for public safety and have gone even further since to develop a range of security-based qualifications, including SIA Licence-Linked Qualifications.
