Become an ATHE Centre
1. Submit your Application
When you are ready to apply, please complete the Initial Registration Form. Once completed you will receive an email detailing the following steps and a link to the Centre Recognition form, which can be returned via post or email. You will then be sent an invoice for the application and recognition fee. Once the invoice is cleared a number of initial checks will be made. Following their completion, you will be emailed details about the next step which is a health check and you will also receive a copy of the ATHE centre agreement to sign and return.
2. Health Check
One of the EQAs at ATHE team will carry out a health check to ensure your centre is able to deliver, assess and quality assure ATHE qualifications to the required standard. The health check is usually arranged within 3 days and completed within 10 days (for international centres the health check will usually be conducted remotely). At the end of this process a report will be produced on the findings of the health check. There may be action points for your centre to complete as a result of this visit. They will help the centre ensure that everything is in place to start delivering the qualifications.
As an ATHE Centre you are required to have policies, procedures and certain documents in place to meet the ATHE Health Check requirements and to provide guidance for your staff and learners, so they understand what is required of them and how you deliver qualifications and programmes – please find guidance on these requirements here. One of the EQAs at ATHE will carry out the health check to ensure your centre is able to deliver, assess and quality assure ATHE qualifications to the required standard.
3. Recognition Completed
After a successful completion of the previous steps, the centre recognition process will be finished. Your centre will receive an ATHE Certificate of Recognition and Welcome Pack, digital marketing material and access to the wide range of ATHE resources. You will also be able to take advantage of training events, suited to your needs.
