SCP scheme logoAre you looking to attract more learners in a crowded and competitive market? Why should a company choose you as their training provider out of the thousands in the UK market? BAC’s short course provider accreditation gives you visibility and instils confidence in the quality of your organisation. To attract new clients and secure long lasting relationships, external accreditation of your training makes good business sense.

This scheme involves a visit to your head office and observation of your training which looks at the quality of your management, delivery and participant welfare. Achievement in all these areas awards you short course provider accreditation by the British Accreditation Council for four years.

Is this the right scheme for you?

SCP accreditation is designed for training providers which offer short courses of six months or less.

BAC realises there is no typical training provider, but common provision include:

  • Bespoke courses for business delegates
  • Vocational courses for adult learners
  • Seasonal courses for young people

We can also offer approved candidate accreditation for up to six months for newly established providers who are yet to recruit students.
