In September 2019, BAC were delighted to announce the launch of the updated and revised Short Course Provider (SCP) scheme.

A detailed review of the SCP scheme took place to ensure the standards represent best practice and remain relevant. A working group, comprising of experienced inspectors, industry representatives and a child protection expert conducted the review.

The SCP scheme is BAC’s largest scheme in terms of accredited providers. The scheme is designed to recognise the particular qualities and distinctive character of providers which offer short, focused training courses of six months or less.

The scheme is available here and for current providers this means they will be inspected under the new scheme at their next full accreditation inspection.
