Make sure you are logged in as a Guest or Practitioner Member before starting the form, as it will then be saved, allowing you to return to it if you leave the site. 

Start by entering organisation and contact information, current accredited levels and the new level(s) required.

For New Levels at 1 & 2

List the course you will deliver aligned to a specific level, including its title, aims, learning outcomes, topics covered and learning hours.

Describe the assessment methods to be used to test knowledge and practical competence and indicate how the course will be delivered and, if applicable, list new training staff. You should upload examples of teaching and assessment material where indicated.

When you add a new level to your accreditation you should update your current LCS Alignment Matrix (AM), which indicates how your course aligns with the LCS qualifications framework and there is provision to upload a new version in the form. If you cannot access your matrix, contact the LCS. You can download a blank document below.
