  IOL Support for Qualification Providers

Where employers or providers of training or qualifications request formal recognition from the Institute we provide a range of options requiring confirmation of meeting IOL good practice standards and some testing of the appropriateness of the provision for the sector. As we are funded by membership from the sector, such recognition services are primarily available to member organisations of the Institute. Costs are kept to a minimum.

Please get in touch with Neal Anderson, Professional Standards Manager to discuss your project.
