To ensure a standardised and reliable programme is delivered, our training providers are quality assured by occupationally expert and qualified external quality advisors.

As an approved training provider, you can expect to receive an annual monitoring visit. The quality advisor’s key role is to give you guidance, advice and support in relation to the course content and administration process. The visit will also focus on the robustness of training delivered to delegates to constantly improve the standards of delivery. You will be notified in advance of a visit taking place.

Our quality advisors possess professional qualifications, have relevant industry experience and are expected to provide annual proof of ongoing continuous professional development (CPD).
