AIM Qualifications

Information for learners

AIM is an awarding organisation, we do not offer our qualifications directly to learners.

Our role is to work with education providers such as FE colleges, independent training providers, schools, employers etc, who provide the teaching, resources and assessments required to help you achieve our qualifications. We refer to these education providers as centres. These centres go through a recognition process so we are happy for them to deliver our qualifications to learners.

In most cases your education provider will be best placed to answer any questions about your learning experience and to help you with any individual needs and circumstances. However, we want to help in any way we can too. Below you'll find information designed to help AIM learners.
