London Examinations Board is a UK entity registered with the UK Register of Learning Providers (UK Provider Reference Number 10043715) and with the UK government’s ESFA – the Education and Skills Funding Agency. Our headquarters is in Hertfordshire, England and we also have Asia regional offices.
London Examinations Board only promotes superior internationally recognized courses. We are primarily a distance learning provider, but recognize that not everyone is comfortable with distance learning. Therefore LEB has approved select colleges and institutions in certain jurisdictions to offer student support and, if preferred, face to face classroom learning in addition to LEB’s online delivery platform. These colleges and institutions become LEB Approved Learning Centres. Quality assurance visits and training on the London Examinations Board learning platform are carried out by us before formal centre approval is given. Annual reviews are also undertaken to ensure processes, procedures and quality assurance are maintained.
LEB Approved Learning Centres will usually provide additional tutoring will provide administrative and other support to the learners. Learners will have full access to our online learning platform. You will therefore be able to enjoy the benefits of our online learning platform which is truly interactive and harnesses the power of social networking to make learning fun, collaborative and engaging. It is a perfectly safe and secure network for learners to interact and learn from tutors and from each other.
If there is no LEB Approved Learning Centre near you, please contact us. We are always looking for new partner colleges and institutions so that we can offer you more learning mode choices.
LONDON EXAMINATIONS BOARD PROGRAMMES ENDORSED BY TQUK or CERTA
London Examination Board has partnered with Training Qualification UK (“TQUK”) and Certa. TQUK and Certa are professional and customer-service orientated UK recognized awarding organisations. TQUK and Certa provide independent assessment of our programmes and courses and award our diplomas.
TQUK has endorsed programmes of London Examinations Board with pathways to university top-up degrees. Internal and external verifiers for each collaborative TQUK and London Examinations Board programme are approved by TQUK prior to commencement, and an annual audit is conducted by TQUK to ensure strict compliance with academic standards relating to the programmes.
At the end of Certa endorsed courses, successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and Certa Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).
The courses have been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that London Examinations Board has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of these courses alone do not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have mainly been benchmarked at Level 4 with a few at Level 2 and Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.
The course itself has been designed by London Examinations Board to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.
ABC Awards and Certa Awards have long-established reputations for providing high quality vocational qualifications across a wide range of industries. ABC Awards and Certa Awards combine over 180 years of expertise combined with a responsive, flexible and innovative approach to the needs of our customers.
Renowned for excellent customer service, and quality standards, ABC Awards and Certa Awards also offer regulated qualifications for all ages and abilities post-14; all are developed with the support of relevant stakeholders to ensure that they meet the needs and standards of employers across the UK.
*Regulated qualification refers to those qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual / CCEA / Qualification Wales
QUALIFICATIONS AWARDED BY UNIVERSITIES AND PROFESSIONAL BODIES
LEB currently has agreements with selected British Universities (please see our partners for an up to date list of these universities). These British universities have mapped some of our qualifications and will offer a top-up undergraduate degree and/or postgraduate degrees. For example, a London Examinations Board learner who has successfully completed our Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration can enroll online directly with one of our linked British Universities to gain an MBA or MA by successfully completing the dissertation or project element only.
We are always looking to form new ties with British universities to be able to expand our offering of top-up Bachelor degrees for our Higher Diploma programmes and top-up MBAs and MAs for our Postgraduate Diplomas.
