What is the meaning of "awarding bodies"?

Answer

An awarding body is an academic institution that awards academic degrees, credit for courses or examination qualifications. The term is common in Great Britain for organizations that oversee academic and examination programs.

In Great Britain, all academic credit, degrees and qualifications must be received from an awarding body or a program approved by an awarding body in order for the credit or qualification to be transferred to another institution. There are more than 120 awarding bodies overseen by three large statutory bodies: the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority; the Qualifications, Curriculum and Assessment Authority; and the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment. The Qualifications Credit Framework is the name for the entire awarding bodies program.
