Quality Mark and CPD

The Crossfields Institute Quality Mark is a quality benchmark for organisations who want the benefits and recognition of certification by a UK-based awarding body, but do not need a regulated or customised qualification. Quality Mark programmes can be designed to meet the needs of individual orgnaisations.

A Crossfields Institute Quality Mark means that a programme and centre is endorsed by Crossfields Institute. We will develop the Quality Mark with an approved centre and then monitor and review its delivery to learners. A Quality Mark can be entirely flexible with regard to process and structure and is built around the specific needs of the provider.
