Working in Partnership
We believe in developing strong and long term partnerships to support employer needs and we work closely with industry experts including employers, trade bodies, sector skills councils, training providers and government departments/agencies to ensure our qualifications and accreditation services are fit for purpose. Unlike many large Awarding Organisations we are able to provide a highly flexible and responsive service, particularly with regards to our product development and business support services. All our employers are allocated a dedicated Business Development Manager and Quality Assurer to provide ongoing specialist and relationship management support.
Would your business like to offer nationally recognised accredited training?
We can also work in partnership with you to accredit any existing internal training that you may currently deliver to your workforce to nationally recognised standards.
For any support and advice about how we can help you to develop the skill base within your workforce, please contact a member of the Business Development Team.
Employers can now verify Open College Network West Midlands certificates through our Certificate Verification process. Verify a certificate here.
