New Quality Mark for Learning


The British Learning Association (BLA) is set to launch its new Quality Mark at next month's World of Learning Exhibition.

To achieve the mark organisations will go through a process of self-assessment and external verification.

BLA General Manager, Brian Merison, said that the mark had been redeveloped over the last 18 months. The aim being to make it relevant and accessible to a wide range of organisations.

“We believe that it acts as a powerful tool for enhancing the impact of learning and in so doing increasing the competitiveness of individual organisations and the economy as a whole," he added.

BLA Quality Forum member Alistair Morrison is a member of the team working on the redevelopment project. In 1998 Morrison was Managing Director of Skillchange Systems when it became one of the first organisations to achieve the Quality Mark Award.

He is set to present a seminar on the new award at this year’s World of Learning Conference and Exhibition on 15 November.

Morrison said that in his own experience, achieving the Quality Mark took a lot of effort but was "really was worth it".

"Going through the assessment process identified areas for development that enabled us to improve both the quality of what we produced and the productivity of our operations," he sad. "The public recognition of our commitment to quality and to continuous improvement was also of great value commercially and it acted as a morale booster for everyone.”
