The British Standards Institution (BSI) Kitemark for services is an initiative put forth by the UK government in order to effectively standardise and certify quality training programmes and educational institutions within the hospitality industry.

As one of the most recognised symbols of quality throughout the world, the BSI Kitemark, a certification with the intention of identifying true value to consumers and prospective trainees, is an accreditation confirming that a particular service consistently conforms to high standards and thereby is something in which people are able to place their trust.
