Choosing a training provider
When choosing a training provider you want to be sure that the provider is quality assured, thus you are getting the best training for your business. This is why you should ask yourself the following questions when selecting a training provider:
- Does the training provider understand the training needs of my business and will they cater accordingly?
- How professional is the training provider?
- Is the course value for money?
In selecting a training provider that has achieved the Training Quality Standard, you are assuring that all the above questions are answered in the most positive way. Certification against the Training Quality Standard is tough to achieve, so we can be confident in endorsing Certificated organisations to employers.
This is because the Training Quality Standard:
- is designed to recognise and celebrate the best organisations delivering training and development solutions to employers
- is designed to reflect employers' priorities and expectations in sourcing training and development solutions, and the practices of the organisations proven to be the best at delivering them
