Approved level 2 and level 3 technical qualifications

Level 2 and level 3 technical qualifications align to IfATE’s occupational standards. 

The level 2 and level 3 technical qualifications currently approved by IfATE are set out in the downloadable files below. 

All approved qualifications must continue to meet IfATE's approval criteria. 

IfATE may:

  • review qualifications at any time
  • may withdraw approval following such a review

Approval may be withdrawn, if IfATE considers that any of the approvals criteria are no longer met. 

Changes to qualifications may need to be made after they have been approved by IfATE. 

Where changes are made, qualifications must continue to align to the most up to date occupational standard. They must also continue to meet employer requirements. 

Please follow the guidance on our website If you intend to make changes to your qualification materials

DfE have published a list of new qualifications approved for funding at level 3 and available for first teach from August 2025. Further information and the list can be found here.
