Accreditation in Process
We are delighted to welcome the following TEFL/TESOL companies who are in the process of being accredited by ACCREDITAT at this time. They will be added to our list above in the coming weeks.
- TEFL Madrid Academy, Madrid
- New English Centre, Malaga, Spain
Example - Marrying the Skills of ACCREDITAT and Training IssuesHere is a recent example of how the skills of our specialist accreditation team here at ACCREDITAT and the skills of our colleagues at Training Issues interwove seamlessly to achieve a win-win outcome for all, and especially our client: Allianz Asia Pacific.
Training Issues Ltd was contracted by Allianz to design the bulk of the modules and courses for their new Allianz Business Academy. This involved the creation of over 120 modules and courses. Allianz asked if we could accredit the courses. Clearly, we cannot accredit our own courses, so ACCREDITAT could not be utilised in this instance. And, as the modules and courses would need to contain a very large ELT content for their launch and delivery to thousands of personnel using English as a second or foreign language in 8 different countries, we could not source any UK company with similar accreditation experience to ACCREDITAT in the ELT business area.
The solution arrived at was to utilise the University of Shanghai as the accrediting body, as ACCREDITAT could not accredit Training Issues. But to save our clients time and money, the ACCREDITAT team worked with their Training Issues colleagues to ensure the materials would meet first time the stringent accreditation standards set by the University of Shanghai.
In the end, accreditation was granted swiftly and Training Issues did not receive a single request from the University to alter any content, structure or methodology within the 120+ accredited courses and modules.
From this example, we hope we have demonstrated to you ACCREDITAT’s in-depth experience in accreditation, the advantages of being linked with our quality learning and development company, Training Issues, our international exposure and our determination to get it right first time.
