COMPARING CITY & GUILDS QUALIFICATIONS WITH THE UNITED STATES EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM



The following information is provide by the U.S Department of Education and the National Science Foundation in a publication known as Mapping the World of Education.

British program completion awards are of two types: academic and professional degrees and other awards granted by educational institutions, and credentials certifying completion of study programs and passage of examinations granted by professional associations. The United Kingdom also possesses three internal education systems: one for England and Wales, one for Scotland, and one for Northern Ireland. Awards granted in all three systems are listed as appropriate.

In the listing below, academic and professional degree awards are listed first, followed by a listing of known professional credentials corresponding to various degree levels. The two lists are separated by a dash line (_____). This arrangement avoids the confusion that might follow from mixing different credentials in a single list. Many member states of the British Commonwealth, as well as non-members, have arrangements whereby their citizens may earn British degrees and other credentials. Reference to the listing for the United Kingdom is indicated under the heading for each country known to have such an arrangement.


CDS Postsecondary Educational Award Definitions


Short Undergraduate Postsecondary Awards. The SED coding system further refines the ISCED-based adaptation created by IAU/TRACE. Using the operational definitions of secondary education and of the secondary-postsecondary transition point, short postsecondary programs and awards not leading to a full first degree are defined as follows:

50 - Postsecondary Programs and Awards of No More Than 2 Years. Programs and awards that are designed to represent no more than 2 years of study; constitute postsecondary education as operationally defined in CIDS; and are not second (graduate-level) programs and awards.

51 - Postsecondary Programs and Awards of More Than 2 but Less Than 4 Years. Programs and awards that are designed to represent more than 2 years of study but less than 4 years; constitute postsecondary education as operationally defined in CIDS; and are not second (graduate-level) programs and awards. Very few educational systems have full first degree programs that would correspond to CDS codes 50 or 51. Most degrees, diplomas, or certificates awarded at these levels are either terminal, occupationally specific awards or intermediate awards en route to a first degree. For example, U.S. associate degree awards would be assigned code 50 because they are 2-year

Long Undergraduate Postsecondary Awards. Longer initial postsecondary programs, including most full first degree programs, are assigned one of the following codes in CIDS:

60 - 4-Year Postsecondary Programs and Awards. Postsecondary programs and awards which are designed to represent 4 years of study beyond 12-year secondary awards as operationally defined in CIDS; and which are not second (graduate-level) programs and awards.

61 - Postsecondary Programs and Awards of More Than 4 but Less Than 6 Years. Postsecondary programs and awards which are designed to represent more than 4 but less than 6 years of study beyond 12-year secondary awards as operationally defined in CIDS; and which are not second (graduate-level) programs and awards.

70 - Advanced First Postsecondary Programs and Awards. Postsecondary programs and awards which are designed to represent 6 or more years of study beyond 12-year secondary awards as operationally defined in CIDS; are not second (graduate-level) programs and awards; but may represent second first degree programs and awards.

CDS codes 60 and 61, as well as some postsecondary programs and awards assigned to code 70, represent a sequence of program length extending beyond codes 50 and 51. These codes, as implied by ISCED level 6, also happen to correspond to the placement of most first postsecondary degrees. Code 60 includes some 3-year first degrees, such as certain British and Commonwealth bachelor's degrees, which follow secondary awards assigned to level code 32 (in this case because the prerequisite secondary attainment is the 13-year Sixth Form qualification).

In addition, code 70 includes some degrees, diplomas, and certificates which are earned after an initial first degree but which are not considered graduate degrees. Examples include U.S. and first-professional degrees in law, medicine, and other fields; certain British and Commonwealth professional degrees in law, medicine, and theology; and diplomas and certificates earned in a year or less after a first degree that provide extra preparation (such as a qualification to teach)but are not full graduate degrees.

Graduate Postsecondary Awards. Graduate-level programs and awards, also called second degrees, require a year or more of full-time study or the equivalent after the first or second undergraduate degree.


Note: The following list of vocational and professional awards includes those of the major examining bodies: the City and Guilds of London Institute (trades and professions of all types); College of Preceptors (teachers and teaching assistants); London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (business occupations and some trades); Pitman Examinations Institute (secretarial studies); and the Royal Society of Arts (business occupations). These are the leading providers of vocational and professional awards. In addition, there are several hundred professional societies and associations which offer credentials deemed equivalent to educational awards. These credentials either require the prior possession of a specific educational award or may legally be substituted for it. Refer to the latest edition of British Qualifications, the official guide to all United Kingdom awards, for current information.
