Product Approval

Requirements for centres to add new qualifications to their offer.

Before centres can start delivering new or additional qualifications, they need to seek approval from YMCA Awards.

Additional product approval allows us to ensure that centres have the right resources including staff in place to support learners to achieve the qualification. To reach our decision, centres use our Y-Connect system to tell us who will tutor, assess and IQA the qualification and where the qualification will be delivered.
