Why BHS Qualifications (BHSQ) ?

Choose BHS Qualifications as your awarding organisation, and you'll find excellent support throughout and a wide range of qualifications at an affordable price for meeting the needs of your learners.

✔ Industry expertise
✔ Industry-recognised qualifications that prepare your learners for employment
✔ Friendly and helpful customer service


Tap into our extensive expertise and industry experience. We work with leading industry experts to ensure all our qualifications are fit for purpose. Our qualifications are developed with the British Equestrian Federation, The British Horse Society and LANTRA, among others.

Prepare your learners for employment

Our qualifications are current and needed by the equestrian industry, providing progression routes to further learning and employment. This means you can be confident that your learners are gaining credible, recognised and respected qualifications to build their CVs and take them into the industry. What's more, most qualifications have a large practical element - giving your learners the chance to actively apply the knowledge and skills employers need.

Time-saving support

Some awarding bodies supply you only with basic qualification standards. We go much further. As an BHSQ Approved Centre, you'll get all the support you need to deliver training towards the qualifications. We provide the following at no additional cost:

  • Comprehensive learner packs - Helpful Assessor and Verifier Guidance Packs
  • Marketing support - As an BHSQ Approved Centre delivering our qualifications, you can choose to be listed on our website, where users can search for courses near to them
  • Friendly and knowledgeable service - Additional help is never more than a phone call away, with our friendly team here to help you every step of the way.

Become an BHSQ Approved Centre

Becoming approved to deliver qualifications, or run a new qualification, can be a daunting process - but it doesn't have to be. We will guide you through the process step-by-step to becoming a centre approved to deliver your first BHSQ qualifications, or a new range. If you are already recognised by another awarding body, you should find our processes very similar; it may be that some of the documentation already produced for that awarding body will meet our needs.

The BHSQ approval process usually takes four to six weeks. If you have a date in mind for your first course, please make sure you contact us in sufficient time.

To discuss your needs and the approval requirements, please contact us directly.

We look forward to welcoming you as an BHS Qualifications Approved Centre.
