How do I become approved as a Training Provider to offer Sector Schemes?

Before you get started, have you read the NHSS Training Provider Guidance Document?  If not please take a moment to read through all the requirements. A pdf version can be found at the end of this page.

To give you an overview of the first steps of gaining approval as a Training Provider with Lantra you will need to have in place the following:

  • Professional Idemnity Insurance
  • Public Liability Insurance
  • Complaint Policies (see the Training Provider Document for a complete list)
  • Internal Quality Strategy
  • Systems and Processes in place to trace and account for Learner Progression

Once you have the above criteria in place and submitted an application form  to Lantra you will be ready for an External Quality Assurer to complete a centre approval visit.  The External Quality Assurer will visit your centre and make sure you have in place all the required systems to operate and deliver training and assessment.  The application form can be found at the end of the page.

It is important to note Training Providers need to use approved Instructors and/or Assessors to deliver training and assessment.  If you are looking to establish a new Training Provider do you have access to an already approved Instructor/Assessor?

If you are looking to  become approved as an Instructor/Assessor yourself it is best to gain approval first before submitting an Application to become a Training Provider.
