Accrediting to Level 3
Personal certification at Level 3 can only take place via the Approved Prior Learning & Experience route – through a Level 3 Programme – and cannot be awarded as a result of a training programme. The key delivery capability for Level 3 lies in the Level 3 Advisors who provide guidance, mentoring and support activities to candidates on a Level 3 Programme, who are tasked with constructing a portfolio that evidences their strategic level capability.
Consultancies may have opportunities to offer a Level 3 Programme to clients senior managers and also will have staff with the appropriate delivery capabilities to act as Level 3 Advisors. Therefore, a consultancy may choose to include Level 3 in its initial accreditation application or add it at a later date.
