Approval process

All applications will be reviewed by the Accreditation Review Panel to ensure that all courses/activities meet the required educational standards and criteria, and to verify that the teaching methods, learning aims and outcomes are sound. All accreditation approvals are ratified by the College Education Board.

The College aims to complete course/activity accreditation approvals within eight weeks. Please note, if your application is incomplete i.e. missing the requested supporting documentation, this will delay the approval turnaround time.
