Once you have registered, you will be assigned a quality approved assessor who will contact you to arrange an introductory workshop for your staff, volunteers and management at your premises. This assessor will remain with you throughout the assessment process.
We recommend that the process from registration to final assessment takes no more than 12 months.
For a small organisation with one or two locations, an assessor will spend three days with the company. This includes the following:
- Introductory workshop
- Feedback on self-assessment
- Feedback on development plan
- Final assessment visit – interviews with staff, volunteers and management
- Written final report
For larger companies, additional workshops might be necessary to cover all regions. The number of final assessment days would also increase accordingly.
Upon registering interest, a company is asked to complete a Q&A document which provides all the necessary background information to assist us in determining the number of assessor days and cost involved.
Only once a company has agreed the cost, contracts will be processed and the process formally start.
Registering interest on the website is in no way binding. It only provides us with a comapny's contact details and enable us to email the Q&A document.
