How to: Request Qualifications 

At Bud, we import datasets from LARS and Ofqual to pre-populate the system with registered qualifications. These datasets do not contain the assessment criteria found in the assessment plans and are therefore manually added and quality assured by the Bud curriculum team. 

You will need to inform Bud of the qualifications you wish to deliver prior to creating a programme so we can check if the associated assessment criteria are already in the system. If not, they will need to be requested. Please allow up to 10 working days for the criteria to be populated in our system. 

Bud Recommends 

  • Requesting qualifications at least 10 days before you plan to start building your programme
  • Provide links to the relevant qualification handbook so we can copy the criteria into the system. 
  • Requests must use the form below

Please download and fill in the below template and send to to request new qualifications.
