Providing Qualification Certificate

What is the requirement?

To become a registered member of the CLD Standards Council an applicant must have achieved a recognised CLD qualification at an appropriate level. You must provide a copy of your qualification certificate to evidence this.

Note that you do not need to have a recognised qualification to become a registered associate member.

Scottish Qualifications

The list of the Scottish CLD programmes that are recognised for registration purposes can be found on the CLD Standards Council website -

Qualifications from other parts of the UK

Professional (higher education) qualifications from other parts of the UK and Ireland are recognised for registration as long as the programme of study has been professionally validated/approved by the NYA (England), ETS Wales or the Joint ETS for Northern Ireland and Ireland.

You can check the historic list for National Youth Agency Qualifications for England via this link :
And for ETS Wales –

Cannot find your qualification on the list ?

If you cannot identify your qualification on the lists, you may still be able to become a registered member of the CLD Standards Council through our Individual Recognition Process(IRP). The IRP route recognises experience and commitment and considers alternate qualifications.

You may alternatively be able to register as an associate member. The first step is to apply for registration and provide your details and we can then advise on options for you.

Cannot find your qualification certificate ?

If you have lost your qualification certificate, we will accept the official transcript for you provided that it indicates your name and achievement of the qualification. If you do not have any formal documentation indicating the award of the qualification you can contact the University or College for a replacement certificate or official confirmation of your achievement.

This list gives contact information for replacement certificates.
