Listed below are the common questions we receive from distance learning providers seeking to learn more about the accreditation process:

Touchawards offers accreditation for distance learning courses.
A provider seeking to have its courses accredited is expected to prepare a comprehensive report on all aspects of its operation, including the courses it seeks to have accredited. This self-evaluation is then followed by visitations from our accreditation team. During visitations recommendations may be made by the accrediting team to help the provider improve its courses and comply with set standards. Once all standards are met, accreditation status is awarded to the provider.
No. We have set standards to ensure that the courses we accredit promote high quality learning. That said, as a provider, you need to make an effort for your courses to meet those standards. However, what we can guarantee you is support in designing and developing your study courses so they comply with our benchmarks.
To uphold quality accreditation process, we make sure that Touchawards’ accreditation team only includes experienced educators who have years of experience carrying out educational evaluations. We may also invite independent subject specialists who are knowledgeable about reviewing courses for accreditation.
