Federation of Awarding Bodies
FutureQuals is a full member of the Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB).
The Federation of Awarding Bodies is a membership body that represents organisations that award vocational qualifications in the United Kingdom.
Their activities are focussed on achieving a vocational qualification system that meets the differing needs of candidates, employers, education and training providers and awarding bodies as well as offering good value to funding bodies and taxpayers.
FAB members range from organisations that are well known for offering vocational qualifications for a particular industry, to larger generic awarding bodies offering vocational qualifications across a wide range of sectors.

Modern Slavery Statement
As a company dedicated to helping people improve their lives through learning, we want all individuals that our business impacts to have access to education and employment that helps to improve their circumstances. Modern slavery is contrary to our company values which are Visionary, Supportive, Innovative and Professional.
We are committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in all our activities and supply chains. This Modern Slavery Statement sets out the steps that we take to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our business or supply chain.
Organisational Structure and Supply Chains:
We are a regulated Awarding Organisation and End-point Assessment Organisation that create and maintain respected, valued and quality-assured qualifications and assessments for the Aviation, Care, Education & Training, and Health sectors across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales. Right to work checks are conducted for all members of staff, as per the staff induction process.
We expect all our suppliers to comply with our commitment to human rights and to uphold international standards relating to slavery and human trafficking.
We take steps to identify and mitigate the risks associated with modern slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains. These include:
- Conducting due diligence checks to confirm they have never been convicted of offences, adverse media coverage related to modern slavery or human trafficking.
- Ensuring that suppliers have a published modern slavery statement (if required by the Modern Slavery Act 2015)
Training to raise awareness of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking:
We provide information and guidance to staff members, training to our employees to raise awareness of modern slavery and human trafficking and to ensure that they understand their responsibilities in relation to these issues.
We have a whistleblowing policy (Public Interest Disclosure) published on our website that encourages all stakeholders to report any concerns about any wrongdoing. All reports are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly. We want stakeholders to feel confident in raising concerns and to “blow the whistle” about concerns and bad practice.
We are committed to preventing and addressing modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chain. We will continue to monitor our suppliers and improve our policies and procedures to ensure that we are doing everything we can to combat this issue. We encourage our employees, suppliers, and stakeholders to work with us to achieve our goal of eradicating modern slavery and human trafficking.
This statement shall be reviewed periodically by the Executive Team, or updated should there be any changes to legislation, regulation or custom and practice and presented to the Executive Team (or the Governing Body) for approval.
