All NEBOSH Learning Partners have been classified based on their performance against the programme’s principles which represent global best practice in the provision of course tuition and support. The key principles are:

              • Ensure all learners understand what is expected of them and what they can expect from their Learning Provider
              • Create a learning environment that is engaging and encourages interaction that is appropriate for the course and type of delivery
              • Provide accurate course materials and continually update and improve them
              • Ensure tutors are qualified, knowledgeable, competent and engaging
              • Give learners feedback on their progress and provide appropriate support
              • Review course delivery and learner feedback and action as necessary

              Learner Partner Status Learning Partners can be identified as follows:

              • Gold – greatly exceeds the principles
              • Silver – exceeds the principles
              • Bronze – meets the principles

              What is the difference between online, live online, e-learning and distance learning?
