NEBOSH officially announced awarding of Gold Status (top category among Gold, Silver and Bronze ranking) to SETA Training & Advisory Services Ltd, a prestigious learning company based in Stockport, near Manchester, North West. 

SETA Training in Stockport has received a NEBOSH award of gold status in a new Learner Partner Programme. Achieving such a high standard is a testament to a great work and dedication of all course presenters and staff. 

NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) have recently launched a new Learning Partner Programme, which will help candidates to choose the training companies based on the quality of the training provided. We are very proud of the Gold Status awarded to SETA at the launch of the new programme.

The Learning Partner Programme is a quality assurance programme that aims to recognise those Learning Partners who can prove that they meet the principles that represent global best practice in the provision of course tuition and support.

At the same time, the most trusted health and safety qualifications in the world – the NEBOSH National and International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety – have been updated with the input of 3,000 of the sectors leading experts and organisations.

“Held by 300,000 people worldwide and recognised by many high profile organisations – Maersk, The Football Association, Thames Water, Shell, Skanska, Nestle and the Dubai World Trade Centre amongst them – the NEBOSH General Certificates have long been considered the gold standard in health and safety qualifications.

NEBOSH Chief Executive, Ian Taylor, said: “Without doubt, the best just got even better. To go home safely at the end of the working day is a right, not a privilege; our General Certificates help secure that right for people all over the world. Through an extensive consultation process we captured not just what companies want their people to know – but what they need to be able to do. We’ve made sure the refreshed qualification truly meets the needs of the hundreds of thousands of organisations and learners it’s designed to serve.”

The assessment has also been updated. Learners will undertake a single question paper to assess what they know whilst a practical risk assessment will assess what they can do. This holistic approach will ensure successful learners return to work and instantly add value to their employers and colleagues.” (source)
