Construction approval process

Get up and running

Our approval process for the construction portfolio will enable you to get up and running as soon as possible, whether you are a new centre, training provider or existing customer.

The approval process will give you:

  • Free qualification approval
  • One easy to complete form, handled by a central team
  • No requirement for further staff training
  • Content which is closely mapped to the current provision so that no additional resources are required.

All you need to do to begin delivering these qualifications is:

  1. Download and complete a construction qualification approval form
  2. Return your completed form to our approvals team at construction@cityandguilds.com.
  3. Once submitted, we will send you a letter confirming approval status and containing details of your Qualification Consultant
  4. As soon as you have your confirmation letter, you can then start registering learners through the Walled Garden.

Next steps

Once you have submitted your QAP form, we will send you a letter confirming approval status and containing details of your Qualification Consultant. Once you have received this confirmation letter, you can then start registering learners through the Walled Garden.
