IFW Training Programme Accreditation Procedure

1. Application

Your organisation completes and returns the application form, along with relevant slides and training notes for the programme. Verbal evidence is not accepted.

The completed form and supporting evidence will give the Assessor an indication if the programme is likely to pass or fail. If the view is that the programme will not pass, remedial feedback will be provided.

At this stage, no fee is charged for the review of the completed application form. Fees become due when we proceed to the assessment stage.

The application process reviews:

  • Identification of training / development needs
  • Development of programme
  • Format & Content
  • Delivery of programme
  • Impact & Benefits of programme
  • Evidence of Continuous Improvement


2. Assessment

The assessor will arrange to interview the trainer either face to face / via telephone / via zoom. The assessor could choose to attend the programme (additional fees apply).

The interview and possible attendance are to review the content of the programme not the person who delivers it.
