The Master Photographers Association (MPA) recognise and approve Barrett & Coe training courses and the level of photography past students can achieve.
Our photography diploma is nationally recognised if you become a Franchisee the MPA will award you with a Dip.PP (Diploma in Photographic Practice), a government recognised qualification as a professional photographer.
“The MPA professional qualifications of Licentiate, Associate and Fellow, are wholly accepted within the photographic industry and certifies that the photographer has reached professional qualifying: in addition, the MPA’s business qualification – the Diploma in Photographic Practice – is based upon comprehensive business skills assessment and is a benchmark competence recognised by Skillset and the diploma standards have been formally mapped to Photo Imaging National Standards.”
From Trevor Lewis (Hon) FMPA Dip.PP (Hons)
This qualification and designatory letters are relevant to our franchisees, but the training is the same for independent students. We are also registered with the UK register of learning Providers used by government departments, agencies, learners and employers to share key information about learning providers.
On completion of our accredited photography courses many of our ex students have gone onto become a Barrett & Coe Franchisee and run their own studio. This involves regular training to improve and develop skills learnt from our courses to achieve industry recognised qualifications.
