Awarding Bodies

FSP & Awarding Bodies

The FSP plays an important role in supporting the development of qualifications. We make sure that qualifications designed by awarding bodies for the finance, accounting, and financial services sector meet the needs of employers.

Awarding bodies develop qualifications and normally offer their qualifications through training providers, schools and colleges. If you would like to find out about how to access a course you can check the qualification list for your preferred qualification and access the link to the awarding body's website to find out more information about how and where to take the course.
