Notify us of any changes

If you make changes to a programme that has already been accredited by the School, you must inform us as soon as possible.

In particular we need to know about any changes made to:

  • academic content
  • teaching methods
  • admissions
  • programme management
  • resources
  • curriculum
  • assessment

HEIs will also need to inform us of any changes made to the placement provision for the Practitioner Training Programme.

Major changes could result in a re-examination of the accreditation, this would normally involve a desktop review with independent advisors, but in some cases could lead to a panel visit.

Once you have completed the relevant change notification form please email it to
