We work to ensure that the standards we set are in-line with the latest knowledge and best practice determined by national bodies such as the CQC, Skills for Care, Skills for Health, NICE, and Resuscitation Council UK. As a member of the Federation of Awarding Bodies, we follow industry best practice on how we operate and how we work with our Centres.
