To maintain accreditation, all providers must submit a completed Annual declaration by 15 February each year. The Project Co-ordinator will contact accredited centres in December to advise them of the process and the Annual declaration form will be available here.
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.
