Key information about professional consulting qualifications

You cannot easily switch from Level 5 to Level 7 qualifications. We therefore recommend most people should start with the Level 7 qualifications in professional consulting because they are similar in difficulty to the Level 5 but are more highly regarded as they are at masters level.

Level 5 & 7 qualifications are rated on the national Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) which is a national system of standardising accreditation quality. Level 5 is rated at Undergraduate Degree level. Level 7 is rated at Master’s Degree level. The course content is identical for both however the Level 7 assessment is more in-depth. We normally recommend participants go for Level 7 qualifications as they are more highly rated by clients and employers. Click here for the Level 5 Syllabus and here for the Level 7 Syllabus.
