    The company is now looking to expand and is seeking commercial agents overseas to represent its services locally.
  • Description:
    This well established UK based company is recognised by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation in England (Ofqual) as a quality provider of industry-specific and English language qualifications throughout the world.

    With a portfolio of over one hundred and fifty clients, the rapidly expanding and ambitious company works with a variety of industry experts to design and develop various qualifications in areas such as maritime, clinical and healthcare, health and safety, education and training and the globally recognised English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL International) qualifications. Many qualifications are also credit bearing for university entrance or higher vocational qualifications.

    The company’s qualifications are made available to organisations directly and businesses, schools, colleges and other educational establishments usually operate in partnership with the company to develop new qualifications to meet local requirements and identified needs. Qualification development and administration is kept to a minimum to make the process quick and time efficient.

    The organisation currently has representation in Turkey, Greece, Italy and Malta and is now looking to expand its portfolio into new markets overseas in order to develop the company brand and sales revenue.

    Therefore the company is seeking commercial agents throughout the world to represent its services and act locally as an awarding organisation on its behalf.
