The Association of Business Executives (ABE) is British Ofqual- recognised awarding organisation that has been operating internationally for more than 40 years. Ofqual is the UK government’s official qualification regulatory authority. Organisations have to meet exciting standards in order to be Ofqual recognised and its logo on a qualification certificate is in effect a mark of quality. ABE is recognised as an Awarding Body by the UK Government’s regulator, the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual), as well as equivalent bodies worldwide.
Following the introduction of the new Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) in the UK, ABE has taken the opportunity to thoroughly revise its suite of qualifications in order to provide the most relevant and focused learning experience for students. ABE’s new QCF qualifications are examined at Level 4 Diploma, through Level 6 Diploma. ABE qualifications provide a framework for you to progress through successive levels as you develop your skills and knowledge of business. The structure enables you to build on what you learn until you reach your intended level and then move on to your ultimate objective such as university or a job based on your qualification.Visit Partner
