Ready to apply for your first Quality Mark?

It takes just three steps to apply for your Quality Mark award:

  1. Complete and submit the Initial Interest form above.
  2. We will send you an information pack containing details of the application process, the subscription options available to you and the Service Level Agreement for you to sign and return.
  3. Choose your subscription option (starting from only £195p.a for schools.) and return the signed Service Level Agreement.

On receipt of your signed agreement, you will have access to the Quality Mark resources relevant to your setting, including the appropriate audit tool and guidance. Your Regional Director will also allocate your Assessor to arrange the first visit and ensure you start your journey on the best possible footing.


Renewing your Quality Mark

Your Quality Mark lasts for three years*. At the end of this period you can renew it for a further three years provided that your setting still meets the criteria for all elements. You must also show that the award has had a positive impact on your provision of English and mathematics.

*The Quality Mark International Early Childhood Education and Care award lasts for two years.



Moving from an LA-managed scheme to a Quality Mark subscription

If your Local Authority is passing the responsibility for Quality Mark to Tribal, then the process of continuing your Quality Mark journey is simple. Download our Subscription Scheme Information Pack below for details about your options.
