Already have an enterprise programme?

We can help there, too. As an academy you can choose to have your own programmes recognised by the IOEE providing additional validation and giving your current learners access to professional membership in recognition of their enterprise skills.

IOEE Programme Recognition

If you already have your own enterprise learning programmes you can still benefit from IOEE recognition. After an initial assessment we can monitor and endorse your in-house enterprise learning programmes. This flexible approach allows you to retain the freedom to tailor the length, content and delivery of your programmes.

IOEE programme recognition is ideal for:

  • CPD programmes – for programmes with no assessment, overseen by an annual review of your processes.
  • Recognised programmes – for programmes with an element of assessment, which receive ongoing IOEE quality-assurance for a more in-depth approach.

How does IOEE programme recognition work?

In order for us to provide recognition of your programmes you must first be approved as an Academy, IOEE approves virtual academies as well as the more traditional learning institutes. The importance is that you meet our approval criteria and that your learning programme results in increased enterprising skills.

Your learning and development programmes can achieve IOEE recognition in two ways:

  1. Enterprise Development programmes – for programmes with no assessment, overseen by an annual review of your processes.
  2. Professional Development programmes – for programmes with an element of assessment, which receive ongoing IOEE quality-assurance for a more in-depth approach.

Benefits of IOEE programme recognition

IOEE are proud to be the UK’s only Institute dedicated to enterprise and entrepreneurial thinking. Our recognised development and professional programmes are the benchmark for high-quality, bespoke in-house enterprise training.

  • Benchmark and quality-assure your training.
  • Add credibility and value to your development work.
