Training Accreditation at NICVA - meeting the change challenge

13 Mar 2015 Roisin Kelly    Last updated: 10 Nov 2015

The only thing constant is change and this year with the new super councils forming, welfare reform, budget cuts, public procurement and charity registration, specific changes are presenting themselves to the sector.

NICVA’s training is responding to help managers deal effectively with these changes. 

For example, we have adapted our ever popular Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management to help the organisations prepare for the future – we will ask participants to consider ways in which they can bring innovation and change to job roles and within their organisations. The Level 3 Award in Education and Training can potentially save organisations thousands of pounds by having their staff trained to deliver a range of learning programmes suitable to develop their staff further and accredit their specialist skills and expertise.

The big positive about accreditation is that it gives assurance the training we provide will be at least to National Occupational Standards. We use qualified and experienced trainers and we follow course syllabuses approved by the accrediting bodies ie ILM and TQUK and this gives learners a structured approach to gaining nationally recognised qualifications.

NICVA believe accreditation increases the profile and value of learning and we aspire to sending participants back to their organisations a more motivated and committed employee. 

We try to be flexible in our approach in what courses we deliver and have accredited and are delighted to announce some additions to our training calendar in light of the change challenge we are facing:
