We are determined that we will offer a quality service for accreditation and to ensure this high quality at the lowest price possible. This has meant limiting the number of spaces available whilst we have a small number of people who have completed the scheme and who are willing to act as voluntary reviewers.

We have decided to leave all the materials available on the website and guarantee that they will not change without a long period of prior notice. This means that members can start work on the scheme and then they only need to sort out the finance and apply once they know that they are capable of finalising their work in the 10-week period. We will also publish the dates for opening of booking in advance and send reminders of the booking date to those who request to be on the reminder list.

Members who have missed out this year can start work on the scheme whenever they find time so that they are well underway before the official start next January.
