What Problems are we solving?
Today in a market saturated with vocational skill programme, it could be difficult to determine the efficiency and quality of given training programme. There is a strong need of external quality assurance body which can be trusted both by students and by employers.
We are very passionate in our approach to changing this current situation and that is why we have LACE (London Academy Certification and Examination) Board- to protect, and promote good quality courses that offer value for money to the learners
Need of an independent External Quality Assurance Body
The basic reason and foundation of LAPT Certification was due to employers and students lack of trust. Quality in vocational education and training industry is key to students and employers.
We noticed the poor quality of courses that were:
1) Either letting participants down with poor course descriptions and guidelines;
2) Providing inadequate quality content;
3) Providing unsatisfactory customer service;
4) Using meaningless qualifications that hold no significant value with any external quality assurance regulatory body.
As an external assurance body we bring in the trust of employer and we increase the employability of a LAPT certified professional.
