ODBL scheme logoIn a challenging jobs market, many people are looking to enhance their qualifications, but don’t have the time to take on full-time study. Online, distance and blended learning is a popular solution helping busy people study flexibly around their needs and requirements. How can you be the first choice for those potential online and distance learners?

BAC’s online, distance and blended learning accreditation can put you in the spotlight as it provides external recognition of the high standards your organisation has met. It gives potential learners – and the companies that employ them – confidence in the quality of your organisation.

This scheme involves a visit to your head office and an inspection of your online and distance training, focusing on the quality of your management, delivery and technical support. If you offer blended learning, we will also inspect your face-to-face provision.

Achievement in all these areas awards you online, distance and blended learning accreditation by the British Accreditation Council for four years.

Is this the right scheme for you?

ODBL accreditation is designed for education and training providers which offer the majority of their courses through online or distance teaching methods. You might offer all your provision online or at a distance, or combine it with some face-to-face (blended) learning.
