Our learners value the career benefit our qualifications bring and we need to ensure that the learning experience they receive helps them to gain the skills they need to fulfil their career aspirations. A great learning experience must add value to the learner by helping them understand and do something they couldn’t do before.

We rely on our global network of Learning Partners to provide excellent learning and support to our learners and to help them prepare for their assessments. Our Learning Partner Programme is a quality assurance programme that aims to recognise those Learning Partners who can prove that they meet the principles that represent global best practice in the provision of course tuition and support. We are committed to working in partnership with our Learning Partners to continually improve the learning experience.

The Learning Partner Programme introduces a standard that must be met by all Learning Partners and we also ask our Learning Partners to commit to continuously improving the learner experience. Learning Partners can meet the required standard by different modes of study, including face to face, distance and blended learning. This will allow us to recognise our leading Learner Partners for their quality tuition, innovative delivery and excellent learner support.
