Endorsed Learning Programmes

What is an Endorsed Learning Programme?

Not all existing qualifications fit the needs of your organisation, which is why we offer Endorsed Learning Programmes – our recognition of your own programmes.

We provide the option to recognise the quality of programmes that you deliver either in-house or externally.

A quality standard

Our Endorsed Learning Programmes are a benchmark for high quality, bespoke care, health or education programmes, and often mark the start of the pathway to a full qualification. The recognition they provide helps your training stand out from the rest, and brings prestige to employers and learners alike.

Our Endorsed Learning Programme is not a qualification with a level or credits, however your organisation owns the programme and it remains unique to your organisation.

Annual quality assurance carried out by us is also a feature of the programme and ensures it meets our standards

Why endorse your programmes with us?

Our recognition adds value to your new or established programmes.

It provides:

  • Recognition of your own programmes
  • The chance to showcase the calibre of staff development within your organisation
  • Complete flexibility in design and delivery – including the assessment methods
  • Endorsed certificate for all participants

How does it work?

We endorse and monitor the overall quality of the programme, leaving you complete freedom to tailor the length, content, delivery and assessment methods to meet your exact business needs.

Celebrating success

On successful achievement of the programme, all participants on our Endorsed Learning Programmes receive a certificate from us, recognising and celebrating their learning and achievement and continuing professional development.

Materially different

When we review your course we’ll look at your reasons for developing it, including why our existing regulated qualifications don’t meet your needs and we will also check if your course is materially different to one of our regulated qualifications. The purpose of the materially different check is for us to be sure that your course is not similar to one of our regulated qualifications. We will check that the knowledge, skills and assessment(s) are different to any of our regulated qualifications. This helps to ensure that learners would not consider this as a CACHE or NCFE owned and regulated qualification.

We would also expect you to check that your qualification is not similar to another regulated qualification. If you need any advice on this, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
