Typical courses are quality and business improvement but other subjects are eligible and are becoming popular. Organisations wishing to be accredited under the QABCB regime will need to comply with a recognised training provider or competence recognition scheme.
QABCB has been actively involved in tertiary levels of quality assurance for further education programmes.
QABCB does not design or deliver education and training programmes and is constrained by its operating procedures to restrict itself only to the provision of accreditation services for training and development courses and for certification bodies.
Typically, the accreditation activity will ensure that the totality of training provision is appropriate for the intended or target trainee and their employers where appropriate. This is achieved via the provision of quality assurance measures designed to ensure that the training requirement or input, matches the training and educational material, or output.
It is a requirement of the training accreditation process that course training plans are prepared defining key elements of the training provision. These are reviewed by QABCB and verified at site.
Accreditation of training programmes provides an essential level of assurance for Trading Standards Organisations, Local Authorities, Chambers of Commerce, Insurance Companies and Higher Education Establishments. Independent accreditation by QABCB and similar accreditation authorities is often an essential pre-requisite for the delivery of training under the auspices of the above and similar categories of organisation or association.
