  1. What’s the purpose of the accreditation?

    I think the starting question would be 'what's the purpose of the accrediation?' in order to decide who to approach.  In our organisation, we went for bigger well established accreditors like ILM and CIPD.  this was because we wanted to be seen as an employer of choice and offering courses that had a certain cache would be attarctive to prospective employees.

    The way we approached it is that we partnered with organisations that already were accredited centres and started delivering our courses through them with the purpose of moving towards our own centre.

    The things you need to think about are that it's not just the courses that are accredited, the facilitators would need a level of 'sign-off' for competence and you would need to have internal assessors and verifiers (if you went for an accreditation from one of the aforementioned orgs).  Once we saw all of the elements we had to have in place we decided to partner so we could use their resources while building our own capability to manage the programmes on our own.

    Hope that helps.

  2. In house course accreditation

    Hi Sharon

    There are several ways to do this depending on your timescales and capability of inhouse trainers/designers.

    1. Go direct to the ILM and become an ILM centre, design the courses and resources and submit for approval:

    2. Go to the CMI, Same process except when you submit here the courses are mapped by the CMI to national occupational standards:

    3. I am am ILM accredited centre and design courses, trainer guides and associated resources for in house delivery for a range of organisations. So if you don't have the design skills to meet ILM/CMI standards then you could use an existing ILM centre to get that accreditation for you.

    Hope this helps
