The SAY School of Business is accredited by Awards Training in Higher Education (ATHE) and Open College Network London (OCN). Accreditations give assurances, and rightly so, because they provide an impartial third-party ‘seal of quality’ for the School’s online programmes of study which will carry weight with employers, higher education institutions, and prospective students, especially those based internationally. What the SAY School values most, however, is its growing number of direct relationships with UK universities that have established programmes in Business & Management and Applied Enterprise & Entrepreneurship (E&E).


ATHE are an Ofqual regulated awarding organisation providing QCF qualifications to over 200 centres around the world and OCN London is a national not-for-profit organisation that creates and awards qualifications. They work in partnership with educators, training providers, charities and employers to help transform people’s lives through learning. OCN is a specialist provider of certified short courses for over 25 years, which could aid in developing and validating the short-term training programmes to be conducted at SAYSB. Currently, SAYSB is in the process of completing the OCN accreditation requirements. In preparation for the OCN accreditation, SAYSB is in the process of preparing ten policies which are given below.
