Endorsed and Development learning programmes

An endorsed learning programme includes an assessment during and after the course that tests the candidate has aquired knowledge anbd skills and that they can use them effectively in their job. A C4CM assessment requires the candidate to provide structured evidence that they have used the skills and knowledge from the course in their workplace. The endorsed certificate is given when the evidence has been marked to show it has met the assessment criteria and quality standard.

A development learning programme does not include an assessment involving evidence of use; it may include a short test at the end of a course about knowledge gained on the course. The development certificate is given at the end of the course.

An endorsed learning programme demonstrates the impact of learning on the organisation with evidence of its use and benefit to the organisation. A development learning programme demonstrates the impact of the learning on the individual and indicates the potential for impact on the organisation.
