SPEC ‘Excellence’ school initiative is to encourage schools to provide high quality delivery of SPEC courses. The SPEC Excellence schools receive a certificate, along with discounted membership and workbooks and a free training place at a SPEC National Training event. This is an annual appraisal and all SPEC schools will be able to submit an application for 2014 if they meet the set criteria. Click here to see the list of SPEC Excellence schools for 2013.
