Raising the quality of education advice

We provide an accredited quality standard for those who support and challenge our schools, colleges, and education providers, as well as continuous professional development, a register of accredited Associates, and a community to share good practice.



We offer Affiliate membership for those who wish to be part of our community without becoming accredited.



Three core areas of skills and knowledge underpin the Associate assessment; advisory, school improvement, and governance.


Senior Associate

A further three core areas underpin our Senior Associate assessment; organisational development, change management, and quality systems
