Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the establishment of a new department within UK NARIC, the Centre for Professional Qualifications. This department houses the National Assistance Centre, providing advice and guidance on the recognition of professional qualifications in line with Directive 2005/36/EC and Directive 2013/55/EU, replacing the UK National Contact Point for Professional Qualifications. The department also has a broader scope to cover all aspects of professional qualifications in an international context, expanding beyond the EU borders.

The Centre for Professional Qualifications currently provides the following services:
• Career Path Reports to individuals who are seeking to further their careers in the UK - providing contextual information on their area of study both in their home country and the UK
• Statements of Comparability for the Early Years Sector - a tailored service for the National College of Teaching and Leadership comparing qualifications to specified UK requirements
• Advice and guidance on the Directives 2005/36/EC and Directive 2013/55/EU
• Seminars on issues relating to professional qualification recognition

The Centre for Professional Qualifications aims to meet the needs of the sector further. To inform this process, we would be grateful if you could complete the survey below.

For further information on any of the above service, or if you have any questions, please contact the Centre for Professional Qualifications on +44 (0) 1242 258 608.
