Quality Standards and Accreditation

Diversity Disability Symbol

We have held this status since early 2010.  Learning Partnerships received the symbol from Department for Work & Pensions (DWP), which was awarded in recognition of our agreement to meet five commitments in the recruitment, employment, retention and career development of disabled people.   

Mindful Employer

Learning Partnerships signed up to the Charter as a Mindful Employer in October 2015 as an employer who are positive about mental health. We recognise the issues around mental health and ensure that we show a positive and enabling attitude to support employees and job applicants with such issues in a non-judgemental and proactive way.




The Matrix Standard is the quality framework for organizations to assess and measure their advice and support services and demonstrate the effective delivery of information on learning and work.  Matrix accreditation promotes the delivery of high quality information, advice and guidance by ensuring organizations review, evaluate and develop their services, encourage the take up of professionally recognised qualifications and are committed to the continuous professional development of their staff.  The standard consists of four elements which fit around an organization’s business themes; Leadership and Management, Resources, Service Delivery and Continuous Improvement.  


Contractors Health and Safety Scheme

CHAS is an assessment that evaluates health and safety competence and compliance. Learning Partnerships obtained “accredited” status in April 2011 and has continued to maintain the standard at each annual re-assessment.


National Open College Network Accreditation

Centre status was awarded by NOCNYHR (Yorkshire & Humber Region) in November 2011 following a rigorous review of organisational and project specific staffing, policies and procedures. The Charity is currently delivering accredited training through NOCN which is recognized within the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). This strengthens the learner experience by ensuring learning programmes are individually tailored and suited to identify needs.
