UK Commission for Consistent Learning (UK-CCL) which is a limited by guarantee as a Non-Profit Quasi Charity with the Incorporation No 05396290 in Great Britain and monitors the Knowledge Professional Quality Management Standards (PQMS) either through the National and Regional Offices (CCL-NO/RO) or directly via UK-CCL HQ in compliance with procedures as laid down by UK-CCL PQMS 5001: 2005.
The aim of UK-CCL is not only to enrich professional knowledge learning but also to preservethe professionalquality management standards. As such, UK-CCL strives to adopt appropriate methods of learning and assessment to suit individual circumstances. While we pay homage to Darwin for his theory of evolution, we feel that a parallel tribute could be paid to the Founder and Honorary Executive Governor Prof. Ralph J Thomas for his eminent visualisation of this vital vision, mission and theory, which he has been involved in, since 1989to date. He has faced many hurdles, objections and he has overcome all of them, due to his sincere commitment to Professional knowledge Qualifications that are considered certified and take into account Work Experience, which will no one refute. Prof. Ralph’s theory of understanding is “Professional Knowledge Qualifications for Career Evolution’- a revolution far from the old oratory. The old school way of thinking paradoxically predicted gloom on new concepts like Professional Education for Career Evolution”. His personnel emphasis is that each individual has to earn his or her expected qualification based on Hands on Learning.
To encourage PROFESSIONALS Worldwide with the available resources through structured quality assessment, examinations, work based tutorialtraining channels, to achieve their objectives in life via the Work Orientated Knowledge Experience Learning (WOKEL).
To recognise and validate prior hands on work experience learning and recommending candidates for appropriate Professional Knowledge Qualifications under the scheme of Affirmation of Prior Experience and Learning (APEL) and Accreditation of Career Progress Development (ACPD).
UK CCL’s main aspiration is not only to help matured working candidates to better themselves but also to serve the world through its Council of Consistent Learning, Consortium of Certified Learning, Commission for Community Learning, Congress for Commitment in Learning, and Corporation of Consistent Learning.
