What is an approved centre?
As an approved centre for the delivery of CIH qualifications, you are able to deliver qualification programmes designed by the CIH awarding organisation to the housing and property management sectors. For each qualification, we set the specification and the learning outcomes of the units and externally quality assure all courses. For some qualifications we set an external assignment, which is internally marked.
Approved centres are responsible for developing the supporting teaching materials and the internal assignments, co-ordinating the student studies and teaching the course, as well as managing the internal quality assurance, including internal verification. You will also market the programme and administer the CIH learner registration fees.
Centres that can provide evidence that they are capable of delivering the qualifications they wish to offer will be granted approval. They must have the facilities, resources, quality systems and qualified personnel to meet the CIH awarding organisation requirements.
How are the courses delivered?
CIH qualifications can be offered on a part-time, full-time, blended learning or block release study basis, or via online learning.
How do we gain accreditation?
To apply for approved centre status:
- Decide which qualification you wish to deliver, and download the qualification specification. This will give you the information you need to design the course.
- Complete and submit an expression of interest form.
