4 Easy Steps to Join Us

It is important that you familiarise yourself with the Centre Agreement and Approval Criteria​ before you apply to become an approved centre. It sets out our respective rights and responsibilities and outlines how we will work together.

Our application process is quick and simple.​


Fill in the Centre Approval Form. For the cost of the Approval process please see our Fees and Pricing document.


Once you have completed the form a comprehensive credit check will be carried out to help us confirm your credit status.


Once you pass your credit check, we will issue you with a Centre Agreement. To ensure we comply with the Regulators 'General Conditions of Recognition', a written agreement must be in place, which has to be signed by a person with the appropriate authority. When this has been received, you'll be allocated an External Quality Assurer who will contact you to arrange a date to discuss and complete your centre and qualification approval. At this point you will also get your account details and a login for our Portal website.


When your Centre has been approved, you’ll receive a certificate to display and can start registering learners.
