Accreditation Application

Accreditation Application

What are the Advantages of Accreditation to the Educational Establishment?

Accreditation of programmes benefits the establishment by:

  • setting the department/establishment in the focus of the world textile community
  • including the establishment in the listing of leading international textile education bodies
  • facilitating the maintenance of educational standards between different countries and specialisations
  • providing an indication of programme quality and excellence of provision by an international peer-assessment process
  • providing further opportunities for graduates to take up textiles-based careers

Application Process

Accreditation is by application which is assessed by a small panel of experts and ratified by the Professional Qualifications Committee.

To apply, an institution needs to pay the application fee (£150) and submit the application form including as much detail about the course as possible.

The fee can be paid via the website or the institution can request an invoice. The application form is submitted via email to Rebecca Unsworth: runsworth@textileinst.org.uk 

This application will then be assessed by a small panel of experts.

In some instances, the panel may wish to visit the institution, interview or ask for further information to assist in the assessment.

The final decision is then ratified by the Professional Qualifications Committee. The institution can then register the accreditation which lasts for 5 years.
