Accredited Colleges will be provided with differentiation, profile and coverage at every opportunity and will provide a direct pipeline of talent back into the industry.

The Recruitment Academy, whereby only students qualifying at levels 1, 2 & 3 are provided with the opportunity of employment  at different levels and types.  A percentage of all recruitment fees are re-invested back into these colleges.

The fee to become an accredited college is £2,000 plus VAT which simply covers the costs incurred during the rigorous audit and review process.
