Accreditation by ASIC is independent and unbiased, and our team is experienced, professional, and approachable. We have designed the process to help you achieve your goals and deliver the best possible learning environment for your students.
The assessment leading to accreditation covers the whole range of facilities, resources, and activities of the institution as listed above, prioritising the student experience. Ultimately, we want to encourage our accredited institutions to be as student-focused as possible in their approach.
"We found the accreditation process very positive, supportive, interesting and helpful in developing our centre, especially at the management level. Thank you."- Notting Hill College
ASIC accreditation is holistic – encompassing institutions in their entirety (rather than particular programmes or qualifications). We will evaluate your management structure, staff expertise, facilities, and resources to recognise areas of strength and boost those requiring improvement.
The process underpins your commitment to providing a high-quality learning experience for your students in a safe and supportive environment. Once accredited, we then work with you to further enhance your offering.
We deliver a regular programme of seminars and training programmes. Re-occurring topics include the accreditation process, health and safety, safeguarding and security, awarding bodies and curriculum review, ethical student recruitment, codes of practice and ethics policy development, UKVI compliance, and combating fraud. Once accredited institutions also gain access to:
- A dedicated Customer Relations Manager and ASIC Surgeries.
- Premium rates on CPD training from EduCare + discounts from our partners.
- Professional Development through Harvard Graduate School of Education
- The ASIC international network, spanning over 65 countries.
- International promotion and marketing opportunities.
