ABE Endorsed

ABE is pleased to offer external validation of independent educational programmes which require an international mark of quality and credibility. Our 'ABE Endorsed' scheme validates the quality processes associated with the delivery and assessment of programmes where completion of the programme doesn’t result in a qualification, but has an assessment attached.

ABE Endorsed gives all your stakeholders assurance that the learning programme has been recognised by an international body which adheres to best practice standards. 

Once approved, the programme is ‘ABE Endorsed’ and can be promoted as such.

ABE Endorsed gives credential holders assurance that their programme has been recognised by an international body which adheres to best practice standards. ABE has an established track record of  more than 40 years in delivering high-quality assessment and learning experiences globally. Our processes and systems are developed by experts and run according to our exacting policies and standards.
