Capita’s education resourcing business receives IAAS Accreditation
Capita’s education resourcing business has been awarded the Independent Academies Assured Services Quality Mark (IAAS), acknowledging its proven track record of professionalism within the education market
Supported by the Independent Academies Association (IAA) and the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), the IAAS Quality Mark has been created in response to the education sector’s requirement to buy from a safe source. In order to gain the Quality Mark suppliers are assessed against a number of criteria to demonstrate that they have the experience, products, business standing and ethical practices suitable for a supplier to the sector. Commenting on the accreditation Peter Flannery, Managing Director of Capita’s education resourcing business said: “I am incredibly proud that Capita has been officially recognised as a trusted supplier by the IAA and ASCL. This accreditation is testament to the quality of service that Capita’s education resourcing business provides, and recognises the fact that we value high standards within the education sector above all else.”
Tony Richardson, Chair of IAAS comments: “Capita sailed through the quality assessment it has a well known pedigree in delivering successful outcomes in the education sector and we are delighted that we can endorse Capita to our buyers.”
