The Awarding Organisations release certificates to the college when we inform them you have successfully completed your course. The release dates of the certificates will vary depending on the qualification and Awarding Organisation.
When the college recieves your certificate from the Awarding Organisation, we aim to post it out to you within 6 weeks. It is posted out by 2nd class post, to the most recent address we hold on our system. Your certificate will arrive at your home address in a hard backed envelope.
The envelope will also contain a form for you to fill in should there be any anomalies on your certificate. Where this is the case, the certificate should be returned, along with the form explaining what the anomaly is and where necessary, a photocopy of the ID if names are to be amended. You will need to return this to the college address supplied on the form.
Any undelivered certificates are retained by the college for a maximum of 2 years. If you have not received your certificate and it has been more than 2 years since you finished your qualification, you will need to contact the Awarding Organisation directly.
If you lose your certificate, you can arrange for a replacement by contacting the relevant Awarding Organisation.
If you have a query about certification, you can raise it via the self-service system here.
