An accredited qualification is registered with an awarding body, regulated to ensure that it meets a certain standard, and recognised by employers. The Academy is an Approved Centre for the awarding body ProQual – anyone undertaking an accredited qualification with us will be registered with ProQual and receive a ProQual certificate in their name.
You can take this certificate with you from role to role within an organisation and to new jobs as the accredited qualifications offered by the Academy are recognised by employers across the UK and beyond.
Having an accredited qualification means that your expertise and experience is formally recognised by employers, and the ProQual certificate is portable to other roles because it’s issued to you.
The Academy is committed to recognising prior experience and learning that’s been achieved so we offer the opportunity to access the accredited qualifications using a distance learning route. This has been a popular option for many existing designing out crime officers/crime prevention design advisors/architectural liaison officers - please contact us for further details.
The Academy is committed to providing support to its learners whether they are undertaking an accredited qualification or a course. As part of the accredited qualification classroom phase, the Academy trainer will have a ‘one to one’ with every delegate, and delegates will be provided with an electronic copy of assessment guidance for that qualification.
If you undertake qualifications at Level 4 and at Level 5, you’ll be offered the opportunity to submit specified draft evidence which will reviewed with you by a member of the Academy team who’s not involved with the delivery or assessment of your qualification.
The Academy welcomes applications from everyone and we’ll provide advice and support about the qualification and/or course that’s the best fit for your requirements.
Our qualifications attract delegates from a wide range of professions and backgrounds who all have different levels of experience – this makes for productive discussions during sessions and supports invaluable networking afterwards.
