In house training accreditation


Having just started working for a care provider who support people with Learning Disabilities, I am looking at many areas.

We currently provide training for all our staff prior to them starting (5 days) as well as annual / bi annual refresher training (1 day). It is a legal requirement that staff attend these sessions although there is no set standard for this training.

As we also offer this to external people, we are looking into having this accredited as a selling tool as well as being able to use it for CPD purposes.

Could anyone please give me some advice as to how I could look at going about getting the training accredited.

I have also been asked to look at QA for the sessions. Never having been involved in this, I would appreciate your advice.

Many thanks

  1. Awarding body

    Hi Claire

    I dont know much about the care sector but my first step would be to approach an awarding body. Not sure if this is a good one or not but it's an example.

    You can then work with them to approve your training and / or adopt one of their courses which you can run as an approved centre.

    The first phone call is the hardest and then it will all fall in to place!

    I have approached Edexcel just as a tester and they want £3k just to look at the training, let alone actually advise us on next steps!

    I will try another just to see if that the correct kind of figure


  3. In- house accreditation

    Hi Claire

    It is expensive getting own courses accredited. However I could put you in touch with an awarding body that charges half that amount. Feel free to contact me. What is it you want to know about QA? Happy to talk to you. 




  4. QA

    Hi Stella

    With regards to the QA, I think its to do with benchmarking against other local providers and ensuring our training is of a high standard so our staff are the best we can possibly make them before they go out to support our clients. After all, our clients all have Learning Disabilities so deserve to be supported by the best people we can offer
