SFEDI Awards was founded in 2007 to support the development of a truly entrepreneurial culture and economy within the UK becoming the first dedicated Awarding Organisation specialising in enterprise and business support, a standing still enjoyed to this day within the UK.

Our qualifications are built on the extensive research that underpins the SFEDI® National Occupational Standards and the expertise of the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs (IOEE), the UK’s only professional Institute dedicated to enterprise.

Working with enterprising organisations throughout the UK, our qualifications are central to the drive towards a more competitive enterprise landscape with increased employment opportunities, improved productivity and, ultimately, greater prosperity locally, regionally and nationally.

To support in meeting our goals we work with three regulators; Ofqual, Qualifications Wales and SQA, ensuring that our qualifications are widely accessible to all who wish to undertake them.
