Who We Are

The UK Centre for Professional Qualifications (UK CPQ) covers all aspects of professional qualifications in an international context. We provide advice and guidance to a variety of stakeholders in this area, including professionals, professional bodies, employers, and sector skills councils.

The UK CPQ also houses the Assistance Centre, which is designated by the UK Government to provide advice and guidance on the recognition of professional qualifications in line with Statutory Instrument 2019 No. 312.

The function of the Assistance Centre is to aid the mobility of professionals, through providing essential information for qualified professionals. We will be able to guide you through the process of obtaining recognition of your professional qualifications. We can do this by providing the contact details of the appropriate Competent Authority in the UK, as well as clarifying the regulations surrounding your profession in the UK.
