EuropeActive has developed a system of independent quality assurance that has successfully accredited over 140 training providers (including both vocational training providers and higher education institutes) across Europe.

Training providers who apply and who are successfully accredited hold this status for 2 years from the date of their initial application and payment following which, they will need to apply for re-accreditation.

During the accreditation process, each submission is considered on its merits by EuropeActive’s International Standards Verification Team. The team will support the training provider to demonstrate compliance in the areas of management systems, content, delivery and assessment. Programmes will need to be fit for purpose in producing graduates that can demonstrate the skills and competence required and as identified in the EuropeActive Standards. Once the required evidence is collated applications are reviewed by the EuropeActive Accreditation Panel for review and decision.

EuropeActive have developed European Standards for all our core disciplines and there is an expectation that these will be delivered with some live tutoring time from accredited training providers to meet with guided learning hours if applicable.

EuropeActive accredited training providers are listed on an open web-based directory on the EREPS website for further information click here

In order to ensure a quick transition from application to accreditation approval, please ensure you have all the requirements in place before submitting your application.
