Last Updated: 1st February 2021

A step-by-step guide to help you through the application process.


This guidance is to help you complete your application for accreditation as a training provider for the Scientist Training Programme.

If you complete your application form correctly and provide all the required evidence, it should be a good indicator of your preparedness to provide good quality training.

Although it takes some time to complete, it is a vital audit of your training quality. A good application will mean we do not need to conduct a panel visit, and can accredit you on the basis of the information and evidence you provide.
