The steps to accreditation
First, you need to fill out the accreditation application form and provide evidence that you meet the criteria. We’re happy to advise on the content and review a draft application.
Once we’ve received your final application, we’ll arrange an accreditation panel visit to check that your scheme is working as described in your application. The panel will provide you with recommendations on any improvements.
You’ll then be accredited. It’s normally awarded for three years and you’ll need to send an annual self-assessment report to keep us updated on any changes to the scheme.
