We aim to provide good quality information to others working in the Community Development Learning field. ESB is committed to endorsing high quality courses and work-based learning and we offer guidance for organisations looking to be endorsed and help our currently endorsed courses to maintain their standards throughout their period of endorsement. We provide external expert input into developing programmes and attend internal university validation panels to support the development of CD degrees. We work with community based groups and organisations to support the development of new programmes to meet their needs. We provide guidance o Awarding Bodies as they develop new units and qualifications.
