Alternative Education Provision Accreditation Process

Nottingham City Council has an accredited education provider directory; accredited providers will be commissioned, by Nottingham City Schools/Academies and Local Authority statutory services, to deliver alternative education provision for vulnerable children and young people across Nottingham City, including those who have been permanently excluded from school or who are without a school place.

The accreditation will operate across Nottingham City and the surrounding areas, where applicable.

Providers must have experience in delivering good quality alternative education provision to vulnerable young people and, where applicable, be relevantly registered with the Department for Education.

Details of how to apply for accreditation are available below; completed applications or any questions can be sent to apreferrals@nottinghamcity.gov.uk
