Accrediting Bodies

“If you want to get qualified it’s important to make sure that the course you take is accredited, which means that an awarding body has inspected the course, and has approved the qualification. Awarding bodies are organisations that are strictly regulated, and make sure that the resources and qualifications they approve are of an extremely high standard. Global Edulink is proud to be a fully accredited learning provider, and have listed the information about our accreditors below, so you can stay informed.”
