As you will be aware from the latest SFEDI Awards e-newsletter the current Enterprise Suite of qualifications are due to be reviewed. This will affect the following qualifications:
|Current Qualification||Expiry Date|
|Level 1 Award in Exploring Enterprise||30th June 2012|
|Level 2 Award in Aspects of Enterprise||30th June 2012|
|Level 3 Award in Aspects of Enterprise||30th June 2012|

|Level 2 NVQ Certificate in Starting Your Own Business||30th June 2012|
|Level 3 Certificate in Preparing to Run Your Own Business||30th June 2012|
|Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Starting to Run Your Own Business||30th June 2012|
From 1st July 2012 these qualifications will no longer accept new registrations. The changes do not affect those who are registered on the current qualifications by this date and they will be able to complete and be certificated.
We have recently submitted the replacement qualifications to the Standard Setting Body as the first stage of the renewal process and aim to have these qualifications available to the centre network during May 2012 for new registrations.
Centres who currently deliver these qualifications will be automatically authorised to offer the new qualifications once they are available and a centre update will be circulated once the titles and structures have been agreed by the regulatory bodies.
There will be a period of time where a centre can register on both the existing and the new qualifications to allow a transition period to minimise disruption.
We recommend that centres attend the recently publicised SFEDI Awards Road Show events to hear about the changes to the qualifications and have a chance to ask questions in person.
Places are still available for the SFEDI Awards Road Show and you can reserve your place by clicking here. Reservations are being taken on a first come first served basis so book early to avoid disappointment.
