The BLA’s Quality Mark is a scheme designed to improve the impact of learning interventions on organisational performance. It is designed for use across all sectors of learning & development. It establishes a common set of quality indicators for all aspects of learning materials production, delivery and use to give confidence to purchasers and learners.

Pam Mosedale, Lead Business Partner - Transmission at National Grid, said "National Grid's Learning Hub at Warwick provides a learning and information service across the UK business. Quality is a key performance measure. We need to ensure the services we provide are aligned to the business and individual needs. The BLA Quality Mark is an excellent way of recognising our commitment to quality and continuously improving the services we provide to the business."

The strength of the system is a framework adapted from the EFQM-Model. This provides a robust, objective and internationally recognised model of excellence.

Chair of the BLA Quality Forum, Lance Spraggons, commented "Having been involved in the Quality Mark since the beginning in 1995 and more recently in the development of the new Quality Mark, I honestly believe that the BLA has a unique and superior quality scheme. He went on to say, "It is unique in that unlike other quality processes this one has been developed by leading learning practitioners solely for the learning community, and superior because of the nature in which it is achieved; self-assessment; onsite support and verification from a BLA trained and approved Quality Mark practitioner; and an independent Quality Forum that oversees the Quality Mark. This coupled with a range of Quality Mark holder benefits makes this an unrivalled product"

Learning Provider Skills Train has also signed up for the Quality Mark prior to its launch in November.
