About the Core Values
As the sector developed, ANUK recognised that, of the many and varied schemes operating across the country, there were some which were poorly conceived and administered. In 2007, in order to help professionalise the sector and to protect its future reputation, ANUK determined, on the basis of broad consultation, a set of four core values which accreditation schemes should commit to.
In reviewing the potential core values, ANUK surveyed the wide spectrum of worthwhile and successful scheme types, ranging from the successful skills-based scheme run across London by LLAS to highly regulatory schemes with complex systems of assessment and verification, such as the National Codes for Larger Student Developments.
In embracing this diversity, ANUK concluded that any definition had to be sufficiently flexible to accommodate different species of scheme, but also sufficiently robust to exclude schemes that were little more than individual campaigns or mail shots.
