Is your institution eligible to apply for BAC-FAA Joint Accreditation? If your institution has a formal recognised relationship with a higher education institution, and offers finance-related programmes, it is eligible for BAC-FAA Joint Accreditation, provided it meets the following criteria:

  • The institution is licensed by a local, regional or national licensing agency, if such licensing is mandatory or holds accreditation from a nationally-recognised educational or professional body.
  • The institution offers teaching in English.
  • The institution predominantly teaches learners aged 16 or over.
  • Effective control of the institution is the responsibility of an accountable management.
  • The institution is led by a proprietor or designated principal/director, who must have clear contractual responsibilities for the running of the institution and for the quality of its work.
  • There are no grounds for believing the proprietor, principal/director or any other senior manager to be unfit to have responsibility for the institution.
  • The institution has provided a relevant education programme for a minimum period of two years. Exceptionally, BAC may approve accreditation at an earlier date, although this would normally only be available to institutions which are part of a larger organisation which itself meets the above requirements.
