What happens next?
The consideration of submissions for the Accreditation or Approval are processed in two stages:
During this stage the submission will be reviewed by the Education Team. The purpose of the review is to identify any areas of the submission which, in advance of presentation to the Education Committee, may require clarification, addition, or amendment
An individual member of the team will be assigned as the primary contact for each submission and will contact the education provider directly in regard to any areas requiring further input.
We aim to complete the Stage One Review within fifteen working days however it may take longer if additional information is required.
Upon completion of the Stage One Review the submission will be referred for consideration at a meeting of the Education Committee. The education provider will be advised of the date on which the submission will receive consideration.
