It is an opportunity for organisations to add credibility to their CPD courses, and benefit from the quality, reliability and competence of endorsing with a globally recognised awarding organisation. These include more specialised courses that fit with a particular niche.

Our service is for employers and training providers all over the world who want to deliver specialist training to meet the needs of their business, industry sector or local region.

We have previously endorsed courses in the following sectors; wellness, fitness and related hair and beauty CPD.

Process and Application

VTCT review potential applications to ensure your course is suitable for this service. A comprehensive desk based review will be carried out, including the course syllabus, teaching materials and underpinning policies.
