Badge of Excellence

Collabaration is essential in almost all aspects of work and nearly every imaginable job in business today entails some joint effort by members of a partnership. We celebrate a working partnership with Open Awards: a national Awarding Body who are regulated by the QCF and are a Access Validating Agency, Ensuring our Badge of Excellence programme is of the highest standard.

The awarding of a badge of excellence requires the provider and the course to not only be assured by the IExpE’s rigorous quality procedures, but also to be externally recognised to provide excellent training, development and learning provision and meaningful outcomes by a 3rd party. This is designed for programmes that would not be enhanced by the delivery of regulated qualifications.

It demonstrates to potential learners that the course content has been technically vetted by the professional body for the sector and the quality of training and assessment has been externally assessed.

The centre will receive an “IExpE Badge of Excellence” certificate.

Open Awards will provide learners with a course certificate and providers are able to use the “IExpE Badge of Excellence” logo when marketing their course.
