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 construction approval process will give you:

  • Free qualification approval
  • One easy to complete form, handled by a central team

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

  1. Download and complete a construction qualification approval form
  2. Return the form, alongside two External Quality Assurer (EQA) reports (one being within the last 12 months), to our approvals team at highpriorityqualifications@cityandguilds.com.

Next steps

Once you have submitted your approval form, we will send you a letter to confirm your approval status and the details of your EQA. Once you have received this confirmation letter, you can then start registering learners through the Walled Garden.

We offer you:

  • specialist teams of EQAs, active in the sector and bringing you expert peer-to-peer support
