The British Institute for Learning and Development’s Quality Mark.

BILD Quality Mark

Are you a Learning and Development provider? If so:

How do you differentiate yourself in a tight market?
With so many companies chasing the same business, what makes you stand out?

Are you part of a Learning and Development department? If so:

How do you demonstrate that you deliver training in line with the business need?
Can you show that your Learning and Development is second to none?

What is the Quality Mark?

Demonstrating Quality is often difficult to prove to an individual or an organisation that doesn’t know you. This is why we launched The British Institute for Learning and Development (The BILD) Quality Mark.

The British Institute for Learning & Development has developed a robust assessment against your L&D skills, quality-assurance and critically, learning transfer methodologies.

The BILD Quality Mark is a peer review of your Learning & Development. Once you’ve been granted the Quality Mark you’ll be able to display the Quality Mark Logo on your website, leaflets and other printed materials.

We’ve kept the process simple: complete a self-assessment, email it to the BILD and we’ll consult with you until such time as you are ready for a formal assessment.

At the assessment stage of the process we’ll arrange a site visit to complete your assessment, which is conducted in a conversational manner.

The Cost

In order to gain the Quality Mark you must be a member of the BILD. Once that is complete we can process your Quality Mark assessment, the cost of which is listed below:

The new age of exploration

The rise of instruction

So dominant in fact, that those tasked with devising and assembling technology-based learning solutions have been called instructional designers ever since. As a result, it is easy to believe that there is only one valid approach to teaching on a computer and instruction is it.
