Learning from the past and prepared for the future
LASER is an awarding organisation with a difference - based in London and the south of England, yet working nationally, we can trace our history back over 27 years to the unique concept of building accreditation structures from the sector, for the sector. Our organisation was created as a direct result of working with and listening to education and training providers wanting more than was available at the time.
Although the intervening years have seen many changes of a policy, funding and regulatory nature, we still pride ourselves in wanting to make a difference through championing what our customers want for their learners.
What we do, what we’re called, how we do it, and where we do it may have changed over the years, what hasn’t changed is our commitment to listening to our customers.
We continue to deliver a service that is a vital part of ensuring LASER’s vision and mission statement have as much resonance for the future, as they have always had.
To transform people’s lives through the recognition of their learning and achievement.
To be a leading national awarding organisation offering excellent products and services with a level of customer service which is second to none.
