We are pleased to announce that ‘The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme’ has been awarded full recognition and accreditation by FEDANT (Federation of Antenatal educators).
In order to achieve this we were required to go through their National Course Accreditation and Verification (NCAV) process
This is a national quality assurance process, under which services and operations of education providers and programs are evaluated by the FEDANT Education Committee, to determine if applicable national standards are met. If the standards are met, accredited status is granted.
Training programs are mapped against FEDANT Approved National Standards and the competencies used by the Government Sector Skills Council – Skills for Health in National Occupations Standards.
“FEDANT is a regulatory body established in accordance with government white paper ‘Trust and Assurance, Regulation in the 21st Century’, the Federation is a profession regulator for those operating in the field of Antenatal Education outside of the provision by statute. This means that we administer the profession standards Antenatal Educators, Breastfeeding Counsellors and Doula Birth Companions, are required to meet in their working lives. Registrants adhere to a Code of Ethics and Practice which governs how they work and behave.” (www.fedant.org)
