What motivated your organisation to seek course assurance and enter the RoSPA Qualifications Awards?

This quality mark acts as a trust signal to our learners that High Speed Training’s courses are of a high standard and solidifies our reputation for providing industry-leading online training.
“Entering the inaugural RoSPA Qualifications Awards was an opportunity for us to demonstrate our commitment to accessibility and inclusion across our course catalogue and to show our dedication to supporting our learners.”

Catherine says: “We have a dedicated Product team who, alongside our Learning and Development team, work to ensure the courses in our catalogue meet our learners’ needs. We have built, and continue to build, relationships with trusted industry experts and partnerships with organisations which enhance our offering to learners. This, as well as our internal quality assurance processes, ensures High Speed Training’s courses meet the rigorous standards that RoSPA Qualifications look for as part of the course assurance process.”
How did your organisation develop and maintain high standards for e-learning delivery and content?
“Our Learning and Development team works closely with external specialists and partners to ensure our courses are up to date and reflect good practice. We have robust audit and quality assurance processes that are reflected in the depth and quality of our courses. We have dedicated Customer Care and Account Management teams and are proud of the high level of customer service we offer to our learners. The less time our customers spend waiting for answers, the more they can spend focusing on what really matters - their learning journey.”
