A joint statement from the SCQF Partnership and City and Guilds London Institute (CGLI) on the change to the credit rating status of CGLI learning programmes

In September 2021, CGLI (City and Guilds of London Institute) confirmed its decision that it would no longer operate as an Approved Credit Rating Body. Therefore, as of September 2021, CGLI have ceased all new credit rating activities.

This decision means that new learners can only be registered on existing SCQF credit rated programmes, where CGLI is the Credit Rating Body, until 20 September 2022. CGLI and the SCQF Partnership will work together to ensure that all learners– both new and existing - registered on these programmes prior to that date will be able to be certificated with the appropriate SCQF level - and receive credit points when they successfully complete within the period up to the end certification date.

Once the end certification date has been reached, or earlier if all eligible learners have been certificated by then, the programme will be archived on the SCQF database and no other learners will be able to be awarded SCQF levels or credits for that programme. All learners and centres will continue to receive full support from CGLI for their SCQF credit rated provision until it is archived.

For registration and end certification dates for CGLI credit rated programmes please review the list here, or if you have any questions, please email centresupport@cityandguilds.com.

For any further information regarding registration and end certification dates please contact CGLI. For any queries relating to SCQF level, credits or Credit Rating Body status, please contact the SCQF Partnership. For any enquiries regarding specific learners please contact the provider delivering the relevant programme.
