Become a Centre

Becoming a VTCT approved centre is a quick and easy process

To ensure your centre meets our criteria, we’ll need to undertake a centre approval review which will be carried out by a VTCT External Quality Assurer (EQA). As part of the process you will need to demonstrate that you understand our centre approval criteria and centre agreement.

To proceed with your application please complete the VTCT Centre Approval Application Form and send to approval@vtct.org.uk.

Once received, our Approvals team will review your application which may include a credit check. Once this initial review is complete you will be issued an invoice for the approval fee. Following payment of this invoice, your application will be allocated to a member of our External Quality Assurance team (EQA) who will contact you to make arrangements for an in-depth approval activity. If this activity is successful, then you will be recommended for Approved Centre status. If following this activity, you are recommended for conditional approval then the EQA will provide feedback and an action plan. Once your centre approval review has been successfully completed and confirmed by our Quality Assurance department you will be ready to begin registering your learners and delivering VTCT qualifications.
