Below are the key steps, however you can of course, email us at or call us at +44 (0) 2038452674

Step 1 – Getting started

We value working with quality organisations, hence regardless of the size of the organization, we do not charge a centre approval fee annually unlike majority of the awarding bodies rather we only charge a nominal onetime fee for lifelong centre approval.

Also, we will only charge you for the work that we need to do, so if you’re already approved by another UK Awarding Organisation, we probably won’t need to carry out a visit. If you aren’t already approved by another recognised UK Awarding Organisation, we’ll need to carry out a visit (either virtual or onsite) to check if you have the appropriate systems and procedures in place in order to meet the criteria, at a nominal audit visit fee.

Step 2 – Apply

There are two simple forms to complete and email to us. We do ask that you provide any additional evidence you have that will help speed up the process (the information is contained in the documents below, but if you are unsure, email us at or call us on +44 (0) 2038452674

Step 3 – We will be in touch

We are committed to replying to you as quickly as we can. We are sure though that you’ll appreciate we have to undertake;  certain activities before we do. But we know how busy you are, so if you haven’t heard back from us as quickly as you’d like, please let us know.
