The FSSC scheme is designed for providers who can demonstrate that their training adds value to their clientsâ business. It involves completing comprehensive audits for business and training priorities and an independent external audit. Successful applicants receive an Accreditation Award lasting three years, after which they will need to be re-licensed. Accredited providers will be listed on the FSSC website and will be able to use an FSSC logo on company materials.
Paul Fegan, CEO of Absolutely Training reported that âThe FSSC Accreditation of Training Excellence for Providers sets out a number of industry standards that must be achieved by a training provider to ensure the relevance and appropriateness of a training programme. I am delighted that Absolutely Training has received accreditation; it verifies that our course design methodology and delivery ensures that firms receive the high level of training that is required to meet the FSAâs requirements.â
FSSC Chief Executive Teresa Sayers added that âWe are delighted to award FSSC Accreditation to Absolutely Training. We were impressed by the companyâs commitment to achieving this accreditation and to the continuing development of their service offerings. Employers can be confident that accredited providers meet a recognised industry standard and will deliver tangible benefits to their business.â
This is one of a suite of accreditation and recognition schemes designed to show where firms, training providers and individual trainers have achieved excellence in training. Other schemes are Accreditation of Training Excellence for Firms, which accredits firms that can show that their investment in training produces a solid business outcome, and the FSSC Recognised Trainer scheme, which recognises individual and in-house trainers.
