Further growth for Highfield

Highfield Qualifications logo It’s been an exciting and exhilarating transition since Highfield Qualifications launched in 2008 as Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (HABC).

So, it’s with great delight that we were the second largest awarding organisation in England for certifications in the first quarter of 2019 according to Ofqual! That’s quite a trajectory from the days when we offered just one food safety qualification and had a handful of staff, to today with over 200 separate qualifications on offer and nearly 300 colleagues based in offices in the UK and the Middle East.

We believe we’ve cemented our position in the top tier of awarding organisations by focusing on you, our customers. We’ll always answer the phone within three rings, respond to emails within one working day and strive to listen and respond to you. And of course, we’ll continue to offer the best all-round package of qualifications and support to help centres and businesses achieve their own ambitions and objectives. 

We are thankful to all of our extremely loyal customers and are absolutely dedicated to ensure as we grow we keep our strong family values. As always if there is anything we can do to improve our service please let us know. We really do listen and respond!

More ‘Introducing Highfield’ events for CIEH centres

Highfield Qualifications is holding a final series of ‘Introducing…’ events for CIEH centres looking to make the switch.

From this April, the CIEH will no longer be offering regulated qualifications and will be withdrawing its status as an awarding organisation. As a result, Highfield has been holding briefings for those centres that want to continue delivering regulated qualifications and are exploring ways of doing this. 

Each breakfast briefing lasts two hours and will provide further information on the benefits of being an approved Highfield centre, our policies and values, as well as guidance on our registration process. 

Dates and locations are: 

  • Thursday 6 April 2017 – Cheadle 
  • Wednesday 12 April 2017 – Maidstone 
  • Thursday 13 April 2017 – Taunton 
  • Thursday 25 April 2017 – Belfast 

What you can expect on the day: 

  • details on how to switch from CIEH to Highfield, plus our support during that process and afterwards
  • overview of the qualifications we offer, and are planning to offer 
  • information on our FREE centre registration for CIEH customers 
  • guidance on moving qualifications over to the Register of Qualifications Framework (RQF)
  • examples of associated training materials from Highfield International 
  • the opportunity to network with training providers 

And of course, you’ll get the chance to meet the Highfield team and some of our subject matter experts face-to-face, ask questions and give us your views on what you want to see from a responsive awarding organisation in terms of service, qualifications and products.
