Better Trading Award

My Distance Learning College


The Better Trading Award is designed to help individuals and the smaller business to demonstrate that they follow good practice. This means you can assure your customers, suppliers and employees that your dealings with them will be based upon a sound knowledge of current legislation and professional standards.

The award is aimed at proprietors and staff of businesses who wish to demonstrate that they operate to high standards and have a sound knowledge of good business practices.

Because the award is accredited, it provides an independent assurance of your knowledge and understanding of business practices.

This will enable you to:

  • Confirm to customers and potential customers that you have gained an accredited award
  • Provide suppliers with an assurance of following good practice
  • Improve your business by keeping up to date on current regulations
  • Demonstrate your commitment to staff of good employment practices
  • Holders of the award will be presented with a certificate of accreditation and will be entitled to display the Better Trading Award, providing a visible sign of your achievement


On completion of your course, you will receive two qualifications:
