AAQA, first edition

AAQA Cover image

AQAA is written to support approval and accreditation of programmes delivered in any country. It replaces the previous Approval of Qualifications and Apprenticeships Handbook (AQAH). The scope of this Standard is broader than AQAH to enable approval and accreditation of a wider variety of programmes, including those designed to develop engineering competence.

Approval and accreditation are carried out by Licensees on behalf of the Engineering Council, in line with the Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP) and the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).
