Importance of Accreditation
The initial stage towards becoming a certified teaching professional is to acquire a certificate from an accredited institution which is internationally recognised and accepted. It is quite important to check the accreditations before enrolling in any program/s with the institution as it plays a crucial role in determining the quality of the training that the institution delivers and whether it is accepted by other learning institutions and employers across the globe. Accreditation is self-initiated by an organisation and protects the interests of the learners, the academic institutions themselves and the potential employers. It ensures the fact that the programs that are offered have underwent thorough checking and therefore, it adds immense reliability to modern form of teachings, such as online and distance learning.
