The UK’s Largest Certification Authority

Instructus certifies over 80,000 apprenticeships every year, more than any other UK certification authority. This process is made possible by the accurate and expedient work of our Certification team, who liaise with you at every step to ensure that you receive your certificates as quickly as possible.

At the most recent Federation for Industry Sector Skills and Standards (FISSS) audit our certification team received the highest possible grade for their work. Our service level agreement for processing is 10 working days, although in practice we aim for a turnaround of 6 working days.

We certificate for apprenticeships in England, Wales and Scotland. In Scotland we also register apprentices at the beginning of their apprenticeships – see below for further details.

Certification for Northern Ireland is undertaken by ApprenticeshipsNI.
