HEADway Quality & Accreditation

 An accreditation and quality assurance strategy has 3 main benefits: 
  • Externally, accreditations and labels send a strong message to the market, reassuring candidates, students and families as to the quality of an education provider. Indeed, quality labels position an institution as a credible organisation that meets rigorous standards. 
  • Internally, a quality assurance process not only drives operational improvement, but is also a key strategic lever allowing the institution to differentiate itself in a highly competitive national and international marketplace. 
  • In France, registration with the National Repertoire of Professional Certifications (RNCP) or other registers for example, enable access to a range of different funding schemes.  For instance RNCP registration is a prerequisite for: 
    • Being listed on the Compte personnel de formation (CPF); 
    • Benefitting from mutualised funding schemes for continuing education programs
    • Developing apprenticeship programmes in higher education.
