The Association for Accredited Learning (AAL) is a national membership organisation for education & training providers and teaching professionals.
AAL supports its members to:
Collaborate – by removing silos in education through changing behaviours and attitudes.
Create a bigger impact – by networking and the sharing of resources, experiences, skills and knowledge.
I believe receiving accredited training has been a huge motivational factor in the completion of the gardening programme by our learners. Most have been delighted to receive a formal certificate, and completers of the first two groups had the opportunity to be presented with a certificate in a graduation event that was held at Providence Row.
AAL visited us at Young Adults Matter (YAM Network) to discuss us offering qualifications for our young people, who are referred to live with us due to their vulnerability. AAL took the time to identify our organisation and training needs to provide a tailor made package. They spent a considerable amount of time with the young people and the staff to identify the needs and the structure of the deliverance of the package.
It was a pleasure to work with Marcia during the time she trained our staff for the Assessor qualification. She showed full commitment to get the best out of our trainees and engaged them well with the course. Her long experience in adult training meant that our staff found her approachable and patient to answer their queries.
