5 Steps to Becoming an Academy

Register your interest by completing our enquiry form or contact our Customer Services team ([email protected]). Within two days, our Business Development Team will be in touch to talk through the options available.

Our Business Development Team will then contact you to discuss next steps, including the plans for your organisation and full details of IOEE's qualification portfolio and/or recognition scheme. They will run through what you need to deliver and assess IOEE qualifications and programmes, and share details of the support available from IOEE.

You will need to complete and submit your details, along with payment for the appropriate approval fee. You will then be required to complete the relevant approval application documents and send these back to us with the supporting information listed in the forms.

Once payment has been received and all the relevant documentation has been submitted, you will be allocated a Quality and Compliance Manager. They will set up an appointment with you either via an on-site visit or telephone call/video link to review your application.

Following the quality check, you will receive an update either: a) confirming that your organisation meets our requirements and that your details will be handed to the Approvals Team to get you fully set up, or b) letting you know that your submission does not quite yet meet the IOEE criteria, along with clear details of the steps you need to take to gain approval.
