Quick Tips: What are the Benefits of Studying with an Accredited Provider?

When choosing a training provider, what's the benefit of studying with one that's been accredited?

An accredited institution has chosen to seek external accreditation and receive a review on its processes. Accreditation ensures that colleges, universities and training providers offer high-quality education, facilities and a great learning experience for students. It also provides assurance that an education provider has met a gold standard and must continue to meet the standards to maintain accreditation.

We spoke to BAC, the British Accreditation Council, to find out what the benefits are for learners who study with accredited institutions:

3 Reasons to study with an accredited provider:

  1. An accredited institution is one that can be trusted to be credible
  2. An accredited institution offers a high-quality learning environment
  3. The provider has demonstrated a commitment to continuous improvement and development

What does it take to become an accredited provider with BAC?

In order to become a BAC-accredited provider, they will need to be assessed against BAC standards. Education experts from an inspectorate assess the institution against a series of respected and recognised quality assurance standards during a formal inspection visit.

BAC accredited institutions have had to demonstrate that they meet BAC’s rigorous standards, including scrutiny of the following inspection areas:

  • Management, staffing and administration
  • Teaching, learning and assessment
  • Learner welfare
  • Management of quality
  • Premises and facilities

Learners can also review and read the BAC inspection report to learn how well your education provider performed against BAC standards during the inspection.

Why get accredited?

Paul Fear, CEO of BAC said:

“Demand for quality education has never been greater as students, employers, governments and educational provider partners increasingly recognise that the quality of education is the key to creating foundations for future success. At the same time, students have access to more information than ever before and face a bewildering range of choice of providers and means of delivery. BAC accreditation provides transparency and reassurance to prospective students that the provider is credible and has met a series of globally recognised standards.”
