The globally renowned CPD Certification Service UK has certified ACT’s major courses – International Teaching Diploma, TEFL, Special Educational Needs, Education Administration, Management & Leadership and Train the Trainer, conforming to the continuing professional development principles based on the values of British and European standards.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and CPD certified means that the training programs designed for educators and professionals associated with special education get the high-quality training to develop their skills and enhance their abilities. The CPD Certification Service was established in 1996 as the leading independent CPD accreditation institution operating across industry sectors to complement the Continuing Professional Development policies of professional institutes and academic bodies. The CPD Certification Service provides support, advice and recognised independent CPD accreditation compatible with global CPD principles. Continuing Professional Development is essential in helping individuals, organisations or entire industries to keep skills and knowledge up to date. The CPD Certification Service is the independent CPD accreditation centre working across all sectors, disciplines and further learning applications. The CPD Certification Service supports the Continuing Professional Development policies of institutional and professional organizations on an increasingly global basis. After a rigorous screening process, the CPD Certification Service grants accreditation to a particular learning application. This includes assessments of the applications against the universally accepted structured checklist which the CPD Service has developed over the past 20+ years. The learning value is scrutinized to ensure integrity and quality. The process takes an impartial and objective overview of structure and value to ensure full conformity to CPD guidelines. The CPD Service’s recognized and authoritative CPD Member and CPD Certified symbols offer institutional associations, educational providers and consumers alike reassurance that the material concerned achieves the qualitative standards required by all parties thus providing it a global appeal that is accepted by all. Internal use of Continuing Professional Development encourages and promotes a healthy learning culture for the organisation, leading to a more fulfilled workforce and retaining valuable staff. CPD accredited training courses, workshops and events allow professionals to use the learning time towards individual CPD requirements.
The CPD Certification Service works with organisations ranging from small consultancy firms to large training providers, multi-national corporations, conference & event organisers, universities, further education colleges, local authorities, councils and Government departments.

There is an increasing expectation for professionals to undertake Continuing Professional Development regardless of industry sector, career level, job role and responsibilities. The CPD Certification Service helps organisations formalise knowledge into a structured and recognised approach to meet those expectations. Engaging in courses accredited by CPD services ensures that both your academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated or obsolete; allowing individuals to continually ‘up skill’ or ‘re-skill’ themselves, regardless of occupation, age or educational level. This stamp of approval from CPD Certification Service UK pushes the trust factor in ACT and its courses a few notches up, strengthening our brand value. As you all know that CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and CPD believes in “that academic qualifications must offer more vocational and skills-based or ‘practical’ learning.” We abide by the same belief and our courses conform to the standard set by the CPD Certification Service. This certification will surely lend an extra edge to all our courses as we collaborate to help our learners keep their skills and knowledge up to date.
