Welcome ABC Awards (ABC) is an Awarding Organisation in the United Kingdom with an established reputation for quality and customer service. ABC is recognised by the regulatory bodies as an awarding organisation whose qualifications meet the criteria applied by Ofqual and are eligible for funding under the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) and the Young People's Learning Agency (YLPA). ABC’s portfolio of qualifications has been developed in conjunction with relevant Sector Skills Councils and subject specialists in response to industry needs, and we believe all ABC qualifications are designed to enable flexibility of delivery and assessment. ABC has a transparent and highly competitive fee structure which is based upon credit accumulation and has been developed specifically for a credit based qualifications framework. This is published on our website. ABC fees are inclusive of moderation and certification.
