Welcome to the Centre for Professional Qualifications' website...

The Centre for Professional Qualifications (CPQ) covers all aspects of professional qualifications in an international context, expanding beyond the EU borders. We provide advice and guidance to a variety of stakeholders in this area, including professionals, professional bodies, employers, and sector skills councils.

The CPQ also houses the Assistance Centre, which is designated by the UK Government to provide advice and guidance on the recognition of professional qualifications in line with Directive 2005/36/EC modified by Directive 2013/55/EU. We are part of a wider network of Assistance Centres in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland. The Assistance Centre replaces the UK National Contact Point for Professional Qualifications (UK NCP).
