LPI Accreditation programmes are designed to bring best practice into organisations focusing on the formal recognition of an organisation’s management, direction, operation and business processes. They benchmark performance against best-practice key performance indicators, verify compliance with recognised standards and incorporate an established Code of Practice. The Learning Technology Accreditation is designed for companies who provide communication, information and related technologies that can be used to support learning, teaching, and assessment.
