Contrary to popular belief, cleaning can offer good career opportunities with clear progression into technical and management roles.

This function is essential to the running of most businesses. Therefore it is critical that cleaning staff are properly trained to ensure safety of operative, staff, consumers and clients.

The industry is challenged by high levels of staff turnover and low skill levels. These issues can be effectively addressed through quality training and development of both cleaning operatives and cleaning supervisors. 

Our suite of FDQ cleaning qualifications is pivotal in helping drive up skill levels and in improving the standards of cleaning in businesses.

Cleaning qualifications

Suite purpose

The FDQ suite of cleaning qualifications contains qualifications designed to develop and confirm occupational competence in the workforce. 

Learners do not need any previous qualifications, but they do need to be working as a cleaner - either employed or as part of a work placement.

These qualifications and associated training are available from level 1 through to level 3. This means that they are appropriate for you if you are new to a cleaning role (level 1 or 2) or supervising a team of cleaning operatives (level 3).

Competence based qualifications

These are particularly popular with employers as training and assessment can be carried out largely within the workplace. This means qualifications can be undertaken during the working day and require minimal time off the job.

The qualifications and associated training can be tailored to be relevant to an individual’s daily work and business procedures, to ensure maximum benefit is derived by both the learner and their business.
