About us

Cambridge International Qualifications (CIQ) is a professional awarding organisation based in the UK. CIQ develops and accredits qualifications designed to meet the needs of learners and the industry sectors in order to provide individuals with opportunities for personal and professional development. CIQ has gained the reputation for high quality support and services to the educational sector.

At CIQ ,we are committed to helping employers, organisations and learners cultivate the relevant skills for learning, skills for employment, and skills for life. Cambridge International Qualification has developed an internal Qualification Framework (CIQ Credit Framework) which consists of different levels and qualifications such as Certificates and Diplomas in line with the International standards.


May be not all our ‘off-the-shelf’ qualifications will not meet everyone learners needs.  Our Bespoke Qualifications allows employers to work closely with CIQ to develop qualifications that are fit-for-purpose and meet their specific requirements.


At the heart of CIQ’s commitment to the creation and awarding of respected qualifications is a rigorous focus on high standards of quality and consistency.

Qualifications at CIQ are developed to fit the standards of the qualification framework of regulatory and awarding bodies, reflect the very latest occupational standards and address the relative demand of different qualifications. Learners and employers receive a consistent and credible recognition of learning along with a structured career progression route promoting life-long learning, and are recognized worldwide as a standard for accomplishment.

CIQ qualification levels are based on the standard of knowledge, understanding and competence needed for individual learners or industry groups.


Most of our qualifications are developed to comply with the standards of higher education colleges and universities. Hence, CIQ qualifications can lead to progression routes paving the way to globally recognized higher-level qualifications.
