About ITEC

ITEC

The International Therapy Examination Council (ITEC) has been awarding high quality and respected qualifications since 1947.  It is a leading UK specialist examination board providing quality qualifications allowing people to practise professionally in the UK and countries throughout the world.  ITEC currently has centres registered in countries in Africa, North America, South America, Asia, Middle East and Europe.

It is one of the world’s leading and most successful awarding bodies specialising in Complementary Medicine and Sports & Fitness Training.  During 2011 – 2012 ITEC conducted over 38,000 examinations worldwide.

ITEC is an official awarding body approved by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) and the Department for Education and Employment.  It is a recognised awarding organisation regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations regulation (OFQUAL).  As such all the ITEC QCF qualifications are approved on the Qualifications and Credits Framework.

ITEC Diploma qualifications are highly regarded by prospective employers who know an ITEC qualification means excellence in both theoretical knowledge and practical ability, as well as a rigorous and independent examination process.

Our Courses follow the latest ITEC QCF (Qualifications and Credits Framework) syllabi which were introduced by the UK government in September 2009 and revised in September 2012.

This means that when the government establishes a national mandatory state regulator for Complementary Medicine your qualification will be automatically recognised.  In addition your qualification will be recognised so that you are able to work within the National Health Sector and your course can now count as credit towards a University Degree Course.

Successful completion of our Courses enables you to join the current voluntary regulator set up by the Department of Health – the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council.
