We need to undertake some essential maintenance to our systems today from 5:30pm until approximately 6:30pm. There are likely to be disruptions to our websites during that time. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
We will accredit your learning programme if matches all, or part of, one of our awards in terms of:
After taking an accredited programme, your learners will be eligible to receive credits towards one of our awards. This will make it easier, quicker and less expensive for them to gain one of our professional qualifications. Also, by recognising a participant’s achievement on your learning programme, they will feel more confident of their abilities and your commitment to their career development.
We can recognise these programmes with endorsements, giving your participants confidence in the quality of the learning they’re undertaking.
Achieving either form of recognition helps to enhance your programmes’ reputation and credibility in the eyes of staff, students, members and the wider banking and finance sector.

Once we’ve agreed to endorse or accredit your programme, the recognition usually lasts for three years. We can then renew it if both parties wish to.

We always set out our fees clearly before reviewing a programme. These will vary depending on:
Initial review fees will apply and this is based on a number of factors including the nature of the recognition being sought, the size of the programme and the time taken to complete the review. We are transparent about our fees and will always set out our fees clearly and prior to a review taking place.
The usual duration of an accreditation or endorsement agreement is three years and can be renewed by mutual agreement.
You will also need to pay annual management fees over the time that we accredit or endorse your programme.
As part of ongoing monitoring of quality and standards, an organisation is required to submit an annual report (for which a template is provided).
