About us

Kaplan Professional Awards (KPA) is dedicated to meeting your needs for industry relevant, national qualifications in accounting and finance and business management.

KPA was created as a wholly independent division of Kaplan UK to support employers in developing their employees. As such we benefit from Kaplan’s vast experience and deep employer links to create awards that are valued for both their skills and knowledge content.


Accreditation, regulation and expertise

All KPA awards are accredited by Ofqual (The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation). They also meet the national requirements for the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) making them nationally recognised and accepted.

Being able to draw on over 50 years’ expertise in the Kaplan Group assists us greatly in the development of our awards, which are designed in partnership with industry stakeholders. This collaborative approach means they are tailored to both learner and employer requirements. A number of our qualifications have also been linked to apprenticeships.

Bespoke qualification development

We also offer a specialist blend of industry knowledge and qualification accreditation to individual companies so they can create their own named awards. These bespoke qualifications also carry national recognition.

KPA is dedicated to the future health and vigour of the accounting and finance and business management sectors. If you have any questions about your individual or company’s continuing development, we’d like to hear from you.
