Become an AQA centre

To offer AQA qualifications, you'll need to apply for centre approval. Here are the steps you need to follow to get started.

Get in touch

Let us know that you intend to teach AQA qualifications by emailing

If you're already with another exam board, please include your National Centre Number (NCN) in your email.

We'll then send you the information and forms you'll need to apply for approval.

Check compliance

Before you apply, please check that you comply with JCQ regulations for approved centres and JCQ instructions for conducting exams.

Apply for approval

Complete your forms and submit them using the guidance given to you in the form.

The approval process can take time to complete, so contact us before teaching the course.

Please note, you won't be able to enter students into their exams until this process is complete.
