To maintain accreditation, all providers must submit a completed Annual declaration by 15 February 2019. This year there are two versions of the form:
Annual declaration (full) (Word 311KB) to be completed by all providers due for re-inspection in 2020 (i.e. those whose last full inspection took place in 2016).
Annual declaration (short) (Word 119KB) to be completed by all other accredited providers.
The action plan template can be found further down this page, under the drop down menu for 'Points to be addressed'.
Inform us about changes
In the event of changes to provision such as a change of owner, principal or academic manager, new premises or other major changes, the Accreditation Unit must be notified immediately using the Notification of changes form (Word 57KB).
If a new school or centre is being opened, accredited centres must submit a Request for an extension of accreditation form (Word 68KB). This is to be completed by the main contact in the accredited organisation only.
Accredited centres are re-inspected every four years. The Inspections Co-ordinator will write to accredited centres in the autumn of the year before the re-inspection is due and indicate the proposed month of re-inspection.
Accredited centres are responsible for submitting their re-inspection applications by the appropriate deadline (see table below) to maintain accreditation.
