The British Institute for Learning and Development’s 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 someone 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 BILD has developed 12 criteria that we believe all good Learning and Development professionals should be able to achieve. The 12 criteria are designed in order that it is applicable to both Learning and Development providers and Learning and Development departments.
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.

The Process

We’ve kept the process simple: you complete a self-assessment, send it to the BILD and we’ll consult with you until such time as you are ready for a formal assessment.
At that point we’ll arrange a site visit to complete your assessment, which is a conversational assessment.

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:
