The following documents contain all the policies and guidelines for accredited programmes. Note that these documents are also available in the relevant sections of the submission guidance and within ADAMS. You can also download a guidance pack that contains all the documents listed below.



Training for HEIs

There are two training events per year that HEIs are able to attend. You will be sent an invitation automatically if you are booked to have a visit in the following academic year, though please contact us if this is not the case.

The usual format of the day is to run through the process, policies and guidelines for IET accreditation in the morning with a chance to discuss any potential issues you may have. The afternoon session is HEI led and is dedicated to the use of ADAMS.

You can download the presentation from the last training event below if you wish to know more detail. Note that the content is subject to change year on year.
