Are you looking to become a Training Centre?

CILT(UK) has four types of Centre:

Registered Centres can only offer CILT(UK) Regulated
[1] units and/or qualifications from the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) using the Institute Assessment Route (whereby the CILT(UK) Awarding Organisation provides standard assessment materials and is responsible for the assessment, moderation and confirmation of results).

Approved Centres may offer CILT(UK) Regulated units and/or qualifications from the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) by the Centre Assessment Route (whereby Approved Centres design and manage their own assessment programme, providing that they maintain the quality systems and procedures required by the CILT(UK) Awarding Organisation. The assessment must be approved by the CILT(UK) Awarding Organisation before the delivery programme starts.  Approved Centres may also offer CILT(UK) Regulated units and/or qualifications from the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) using the Institute Assessment Route.  Qualifications can only be assessed by one route, no mixing of assessment routes is permitted.

Accredited Centres are approved to offer qualifications or programmes that are accredited by CILT(UK) only.  Accredited qualifications are qualifications accredited by CILT(UK) only and include assessment to confirm that learning outcomes have been achieved at the required standard.  Certificates carry only the CILT(UK), and relevant partner organisation, logos.

Endorsed Centres are approved to offer qualifications or programmes that are endorsed by CILT(UK) only and do not normally include any assessment.  Certificates carry only the CILT(UK), and relevant partner organisation, logos.
