What is the Purpose of Accreditation?

We are here to answer all of your questions about accreditation. Perhaps the most important of these is: Why get accredited?

Is accreditation mandatory?
This comes up most often within health and social care settings. Rules and regulations around providing health and social care training can be very confusing. Put simply, accreditation is not mandatory to provide internal staff training. You do not need to be accredited to provide external training either. So, why does anyone get accredited at all?

What is the purpose of accreditation?
Our main goal is to make sure you can provide high quality training that provides an impact to the learner. Once you have gained approval, you can provide reassurance to any learner or external body that your training has been externally quality assured.
We complete an in-depth analysis of your course materials and curriculum, ensuring it is mapped to the appropriate national frameworks, regulations and industry best practise. We also teach an Advantage Accreditation Train the Trainer course to equip your organisation with skilled and knowledgeable staff who want to become trainers.
Altogether, the purpose of accreditation is to show learners and training managers that your centre is a trustworthy and impactful educator.

What are the benefits of accreditation?
– Save money on training for internal staff
– Make a profit by training externally
– Save time on admin with the Advantage portal
– Provide dual-branded certificates featuring our Approved Centre logo
– Access our portfolio of subjects
– Improve skills of staff
– Improve training based on our feedback
– Keep content up-to-date
– Improve your brand credibility

We believe one of the biggest benefits to becoming accredited is the confidence it gives our centres. After completing the accreditation process, our training providers feel proud of their high quality, externally validated work.
