How we Support You
Once we have received your application you will be allocated a dedicated Business Development Manager and Quality Advisor who will provide both initial and on-going support.  You may require a Centre Approval visit to complete your Centre Recognition process and your dedicated Quality Advisor will contact you directly to confirm this with you.
Fast Track Centre Recognition Approval Process
We also operate a fast track approval process for established organisations that meet certain criteria.  Under this process centres are not required to have an initial approval visit and Centre Recognition can be confirmed within 48 hours. 
Once you’re Approved
You’re now ready to start delivering our qualifications or other provision agreed!
Recognised Centres are provided with a unique account with 24/7 login access to a secure online registration and certification system.  This is a sophisticated and leading industry tool to provide you with a complete learner management system relating to our provision and the achievement of your learners.  We also offer free training and ongoing support in the use of this system.
Being a Recognised Centre with us also gives you access to a range of free benefits that we hope you can take advantage of.
