Our range of support services include bespoke training days delivered at the centre. If you would like to apply for a bespoke training day at your college, please contact us at

These training will broaden centre staffs knowledge and continuing professional development.

Not all existing qualifications fit the needs of your organisation, which is why we are able to offer Endorsed Learning Programmes our recognition of your own courses and training programmes. The endorsement helps your training stand out from the rest, and brings the prestige of UKAP to employers and learners alike in indigenous market as well as overseas. The availability of such Endorsed Learning Programmes (ELP) gives learners confidence that the programmes are developed around best practice and they are working towards globally recognised standards.

The ELP is not a regulated qualification, however your organisation owns the training programme and it remains unique to your organisation.

Annual quality assurance carried out by UKAP is also a feature of the programme and ensures it meets UKAP standards.
