We are pleased that you are interested in becoming a CILEx accredited centre and hope that you find the following information helpful.

CILEx accredited centres play an important role in helping CILEx learners achieve their developmental and career aims through the delivery of CILEx programmes of learning. Becoming a CILEx accredited centre is open to any learning provider that meets the CILEx Accredited Centre Requirements and offers one or more of the CILEx qualifications. 

As an awarding organisation, CILEx must comply with Ofqual’s General Conditions of Recognition.  It is essential that accredited centres understand their responsibilities and take all reasonable steps to ensure that CILEx is able to comply with the Ofqual General Conditions of Recognition.
