Higher Education

The STA in partnership with PD:Approval will offer HEIs expert advice and external quality assurance that does not duplicate on QAA systems and processes. We welcome applications from HEIs who have developed their own robust degree programmes that signpost our membership offer and ensure employer recognition at an affordable price. We are a not for profit organisation and as such re-invest back into the industry to ensure our members ultimately benefit.

PD:Approval will provide full support to map your programme to STA standards so that you can offer vocational awards to your undergraduates as they work through their degree. These awards will enable your students to work as fully insured therapists as soon as they complete their vocational assessment. The STA wants to harness this method of education by endorsing degree programmes.

Accredited Training Providers

The STA in partnership with PD:Approval will offer expert advice and external quality assurance that will complement awarding organisation systems and processes. We welcome applications from accredited training providers who offer sector specific qualifications on the RQF in order to signpost our membership offer and ensure employer recognition.

We can also support you with your application for accreditation with your chosen awarding organisation, for example recruiting your tutors, assessors and internal quality assurers. Furthermore, we have a team of 18 regional representatives to support you and your learners.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Industry Awards

PD:Approval will offer expert advice on developing your training from the structure to the content. CPD is so valuable to both new and practicing therapists as it not only allows the STA members to structure and tailor their career pathway but it also allows them to work, learn and keep up to date with current practice.

Industry Awards

Provide the ability for training providers to have another route way to gain endorsement for training on.

All endorsed education with PD:Approval can be listed and promoted on our PD:Portal where members can search for relevant training. We have templates e.g. Lesson plans, resources etc and also offer training to those new to delivering, assessing or internally quality assuring their own training.
