Hallmark are delighted to have formed a number of important strategic partnerships with key organisations within the FE sector. These partnerships have helped to strengthen our business.
Tribal Group plc is is a global provider of products, services and software to the international higher education, further education, training and vocational learning markets. In late 2015, Tribal decided to withdraw from the publishing of paper-based learning resources in order to concentrate on its other core markets. Rather than allowing these highly-valued resources to disappear from the marketplace, Tribal and Hallmark Education signed a partnership agreement so that Hallmark could continue to exclusively provide these resources to UK colleges, schools and independent learning providers.
NCFE is a highly-respected national awarding organisation. Its roots in vocational education go back over 150 years, making it one of the world’s oldest awarding organistions. Today, NCFE and its sister awarding organisation CACHE, offer over 500 qualifications at different levels and in a wide range of subject areas. In January 2016, Hallmark became a strategic partner of NCFE. This partnership has numerous dimensions, including new product developments and the sharing of market and funding intelligence. In addition, NCFE and CACHE review Hallmark’s learning resources to ensure they meet all the learning outcomes for the qualifications they have been written to support. Upon the successful completion of this review, NCFE or CACHE officially endorse Hallmark’s resources as being fit for purpose.
