Advice for Rigmaden Ltd candidates and trainees

We are extremely sorry to hear of the distress caused to candidates and staff of Rigmaden Ltd, as this company ceased trading on the 15th July.

We can offer the following information to all candidates and trainees registered with Rigmaden:

  • You should contact the Awarding Body (ABBE) on abbeenquiries@bcu.ac.uk to obtain confirmation that you are registered with ABBE, specifically which qualifications you are registered for, and any details of Certificates Issued and exams passed. You will need to provide your name, date of birth and postcode.
  • We have no information on the appointment of an administrator.
  • If your portfolio is with Rigmaden, then you should formally attempt to contact them to confirm that you wish to have the portfolio returned to you, though there is no guarantee that this will happen.
  • If you arranged any finance to support you with training and assessment, then you should contact the finance provider in case there is any chance of recovery of loss via this route.

We are not certain which qualifications the company offered, but for now can provide this assessment information for Rigmaden DEA candidates.

If you are not a DEA candidate or are a substantial way through the qualification and have access to your portfolio, please contact the Training and Assessment team on assessment@nesltd.co.uk for further advice.
