Industry Standard Compliant ​

Accredited by the UK Continuing Professional Development (CPD) consortium and standardisation body, Big Innovation Centre professional development services are dual accredited as

  1. a provider of Training Excellence and
  2. our courses are also accredited.

This means that the industry and the public sector can officially use the CPD-accredited courses for professional development for its employees. Our courses are targeted at business managers, entrepreneurs, research and technology centres, investors, policymakers, and next-generation civil servants. ​ Once you carry an industry-compliant certificate your skills also need industry-standard verification. Firstly, whether you have taken your course as an individual and independent learner or as part of industry and employee professional development, you don’t leave without a Certificate for your accomplishment. However, to verify your current professional skills, you will need to re-certify every two years by taking the course again, although you don’t need to retake the assessment part which you have already passed previously.

Industry and Employee Professional Development ​

Many organisations, including private companies and the public sector, are obligated to offer certain hours per year for the professional development of their employees. Hours spent on CPD-accredited courses on Learning Lab or e-learning platform can be deducted from the employee’s annual professional development. Organisations can propose their professional employees pick from a range of accredited professional development courses through our Learning Lab to support their personalised professional development programmes.

How to sign up your team or staff?

We propose two ways:

  1. You can purchase accredited courses on behalf of each of your colleagues, team members or small group using their unique email addresses, so you set up each person's unique account for them, or you can ask them to do it themselves.
  2. If you are a large group you can contact our Business Services at

Private Learning Lab Portals​

Here organisations can enjoy a branded and customised experience.
