Becoming a Platinum Partner comes with a host of benefits. As an awarding body, employers regularly ask our advice about training providers and this is a great way for us to showcase your offer. Your details will be featured on our dedicated Platinum Partners website page, so that we can refer them directly to you. We also actively promote our Platinum Partners through our social media channels, our e-newsletters and events.
As a Platinum Partner, you’ll be in a unique position to influence the skills agenda within the sector with regular invites to our various network meetings attended by key stakeholders.
You’ll also have first refusal to be involved in the YMCA Awards product development process, allowing you to shape new qualifications to the needs of your learners. What’s more, there will be opportunities to be involved in pilot projects – helping you keep ahead of the competition by offering new products before they are released into the market.
Providers achieving the standard will be eligible to enter the Platinum Partner of the Year Awards at our ceremony in September 2016.
