SFEDI Awards was founded in 2007 creating the first dedicated Awarding Organisation specialising in business enterprise and business support, a standing still enjoyed to this day within the UK.

Our qualifications are built on the extensive research that underpins the SFEDI National Occupational Standards and the expertise of the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs.

With our qualifications having been designed to be flexible to meet the wide range of demand within enterprise learning, we recognise the needs of industry to develop enterprising and entrepreneurial individuals to support the sustainability and growth of business and the wider community.

Within this we also develop and publish best practice materials and resources to support the delivery of our qualifications to an extremely high standard ensuring that your customers gain all they require when either starting or progressing their enterprise journey.

We created SFED Awards to recognise all those who invest in enterprise learning and development.

Building links with strong advocates of enterprise learning and skills development we partner with respected organisations, such as the IOEE, to ensure that learning is not a one off, it becomes a development journey for life.

As a result, those undertaking SFEDI Awards qualifications are able to access one year’s free studying membership of the IOEE providing access to further learning and development opportunities.
