Step 3: We carry out an approval visit
The approval visit is the opportunity to look at the evidence that supports the information you submitted on your Application Form. It will be carried out by your local IEG School representative – or by a specialist, briefed about your school and what you hope to achieve in joining IEG Schools.
The approval visit is not about looking to identify ‘one right answer’. We know that IEG schools come in many forms. Our network of schools includes some of the largest, and best-resourced names in education today, but also the smallest, and the newest which deliver effective education with few resources.
During the approval visit, we want to build a picture of your school, including your goals, educational ethos and curriculum, and to ensure that you understand our policies and procedures.
To learn more about the approval visit, you can contact your local IEG School representatives.
After the approval visit
After the visit, your local IEG School representative completes an Approval Visit Form detailing the evidence they have seen in relation to the registration quality standards. At the end of the form, your local IEG School representative will make a recommendation.
There are three categories:
- Approved with conditions
- Not ready to join IEG School.
If approved to become an IEG School, we will aim to send your contract letter within 30 working days of the approval visit.
School Reapproval Visits
Reapproval visits are not about looking to identify issues but rather to support you as you deliver IEG School programs and partner qualifications. During reapproval visits, we want to build on what we already know about your school, discuss your goals, educational ethos and curriculum, and make sure that you can continue to adhere to our policies and procedures. Your local IEG School representative will usually carry out this visit.
After the visit, your local IEG School representative will complete a School Reapproval Visit Form detailing the evidence they have seen concerning the registration quality standards.
We will aim to send your confirmation of reapproval letter within 30 working days of the visit.
