It is vital for us to maintain the highest standards in quality assurance, because this is what ensures all students earning an ALAP Award are gaining an award that has real value. It is also our aim to make the steps to accreditation simple, but thorough.
We accredit courses, as well as institutes, so academic quality is of particular importance to us. By following a course of study with an ALAP Accredited Centre learners participate in ongoing assessment as part of their course. Those that successfully pass the assessment earn a graded ALAP Certificate or Diploma as evidence of their proficiency in English for a specific purpose. Students are assessed in listening, speaking, reading and writing skills as is appropriate to the subject matter of the course.
Learners can build a portfolio of accredited Certificates and Diplomas, and can even combine several Certificates to earn a Diploma in a given subject area.
