About Us

AIM Qualifications is a regulated Awarding Organisation; in simple terms, we design and develop qualifications, and award the certificate which recognises the learning outcomes (knowledge, skills and/or competences) of an individual following assessment. 

AIM staff are experts in developing high-quality qualifications that meet the needs of employers and learners. We approve centres and work with them to ensure they deliver our qualifications in the best possible way and to exacting standards.


We are regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) and the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) to ensure that:

  • the way we test our learners is fair
  • our qualifications are comparable with other similar qualifications
  • assessments and marking are fair, reliable and robust

This means that AIM qualifications are nationally recognised and conform to strict standards so that you can use your qualification and certificate with confidence when applying to prospective colleges, universities and employers.
