4.4h Using external providers and facilities

We have revised the document 4.4h Using external providers and facilities to emphasise the importance of ensuring that any provider that you choose meets acceptable standards.  This may be as simple as checking that the provider holds appropriate external accreditation.   The easiest way to check that the quality and safety of most providers has been externally accredited is to look for the Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge.

You can find further details of the badge and also check a provider’s accreditation status here.
