Enabling better futures

Merger Progress and Priorities


Following the announcement in January of the merger between Open College Network West Midlands and AIM Qualifications and Assessment Group from 1 September 2022, we are aware colleagues in recognised centres will have questions about how the merger will impact their centres with the day-to-day logistics of delivering qualifications to learners.

Regular updates will be issued via e-mail, and copied to this dedicated web page. Our team is fully committed, as ever, in providing support to all our centres.

Updates will include information on:

  • Quality assurance processes.
  • Qualification portfolio
  • Learner registration and certification
  • Portals and website
  • How to apply to deliver a qualification

Please ensure that your centre’s contact details are correct on MIA, so that the information goes to the right people in your organisation.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the merger your Centre Lead or Customer Experience Advisor will be able to answer these for you.
