Endorsement service

Want to endorse the qualification materials you produce? 

If they’re up to our standards, your qualification resources can get our seal of approval.   

Our endorsement raises the professional standards of your qualifications and brings learners closer to fulfilling their potential. Our endorsed resources contribute to the success of millions of people at all levels in their career. 

Why endorse your qualifications? 

CACHE is a recognised name in the health and science, social care, and early years and education sectors, which signifies professional expertise. When you endorse with us, your qualification resources are associated with our heritage and the highest quality. 

Endorsement demonstrates that your qualification resources are: 

  • Fit for purpose 
  • Cover all learning outcomes 
  • Meet all assessment criteria 
  • Of the highest standard and quality. 
Endorsement fees 

The fee is based on the number of units submitted per qualification. We’ll agree it with you before we start the review process.  

Ready to endorse your materials? 

The simple seven-step endorsement service makes sure that all qualification resources we endorse are up to our standards and provide excellent outcomes for learners.  

Step 1: Application

Step 3: Review 

We’ll review your submission against our endorsement criteria. 

Step 4: Feedback 

We’ll give feedback and highlight any changes you need to make to meet our endorsement criteria. 

Step 5: Second review 

We’ll review your submission again and highlight any further amendments you need. Alternatively, we’ll forward your submission for approval. 

Step 6: Approval 

After you’ve addressed all feedback* and we’re satisfied that your resources meet our endorsement criteria, we’ll issue a letter of endorsement. 

Step 7: Endorsement 

Once we’ve successfully reviewed your materials and issued your endorsement letter, we’ll send you an endorsement logo(s) and our guidelines. If you change your qualification resources after endorsement, you’ll need to resubmit it for further review. 

*If your resource isn’t at the required endorsement standards by the second review, you can request more reviews for an additional charge.

Our learning and teaching resources endorsement criteria 

When we’re considering a third-party resource for endorsement, we look at: 

  • Suitability of the resource 
  • Appropriate literacy demand 
  • If it meets equality and diversity requirements 
  • Appropriate level 
  • Associated learning outcomes and assessment criteria coverage 
  • If the resource lets learners present evidence demonstrating how they’ve achieved the learning outcome and assessment criteria included in the qualification specification.
