Thinking of delivering a new qualification with us?

Whether you are new to us or already a recognised centre we will support you in the appropriate approval process.

Existing centres can start the process of applying for the qualification straight away using Prism.  If you haven’t used Prism before please complete this form and we will get in touch to help you.

New customers will need to become a recognised centre and apply for qualification approval at the same time as this is a combined process. You should read our guide to Becoming a Recognised Centre before starting the application process.

I always find the help and support from the staff at Gateway Qualifications to be courteous, professional, extremely helpful, easy to talk to, and knowledgeable. We will continue to work with Gateway Qualifications as their customer service is amazing.

To finalise centre recognition you will be asked to accept our Centre Recognition Terms and Conditions. On confirmation of Centre Recognition an invoice for the Annual Centre fee will be sent to the named finance contact in the application.
