Open College Network West Midlands Centres: Lifetime learning for all

Staffordshire Chambers

A Proud Partnership

Linda McQuade, Head of Enterprise at Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce highlights a proud partnership with Open College Network West Midlands that is going from strength to strength.

“We take pride in developing a training offer that keeps our business sharp, competitive and ahead of the curve. By teaming up with Open College Network, we have expanded our offering through a recognised standard.”    Linda McQuade, Staffordshire Chamber
As a forward thinking Chamber of Commerce we have been a recognised centre with Open College Network West Midlands since February 2017.  This has enabled us to deliver and accredit our bespoke training courses through an Ofqual regulated national Awarding Organisation. 
When Open College Network launched a new product, the Quality Endorsement Licence (QEL), we, at the Chamber saw this as an opportunity to further develop our training courses, giving those that were not already accredited a recognised quality endorsement from an Ofqual regulated Awarding Organisation.  We therefore applied for the QEL and were proud to receive the licence commencing from 30/11/2016.  This coincided with the introduction of our new training brochure, and gave us the opportunity of being able to Quality Endorse and Certificate courses that until then were not certificated by an Awarding Organisation.  Delegates are now able to achieve a recognised certificate for the training that they partake in.  The partnership has proved to be a huge boost for Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce, as it plays a great role towards the high-quality standards that we can deliver through our training.

We have a comprehensive, business focussed programme to encourage the workforce to reach its full potential, and which can be delivered at the Chamber or a bespoke service. We are developing the offer through partnerships with the universities and the FE colleges in the county.
