We are guided by five key principles that underpin our commitment to provide high quality qualifications learners can rely upon.
- Responsiveness - in an increasingly volatile business environment, we understand the necessity of reacting quickly
- Flexibility - ABP develops qualifications to meet the fast-changing demands of the modern working environment.
- Affordability - as a not-for-profit organisation, ABP fees are kept to an absolute minimum without compromising quality
- Quality - ABP qualifications are developed by experienced academics and professionals and reflect the latest occupational standards
- Reliability - ABP takes pride in delivering high levels of service
The majority of standard qualifications offered through ABP are awarded by our sister organisation ABE and appear on the Register of Regulated Qualifications. This means these qualifications meet the requirements of Ofqual, the regulator for qualifications, examinations and assessments in England and vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland. Furthermore these regulated qualifications are of a standard and quality that are recognised on a global scale. The ABP-delivered ABE Level 7 qualifications are also suitable for UK sponsors of international students under Tier 4 Student Visa applications.
