Accreditation Update - November 2014

There is a revised Accreditation form now live on the Arts Council England’s application portal for both new and returning applicants. They have designed it around changes requested by the sector and hope that museums will find it much improved.

The Arts Council's Accreditation team advise that the new form is called ‘Accreditation V2’ as the system would not allow them to use the word Accreditation twice, however, the old form is no longer accessible. A revised MSWord version has been published for both new and return forms. Arts Council England welcome feedback on the new forms, to accreditation@artscouncil.org.uk.

One particular change is an amended declaration page, which contains more provisions on use of data, namingly, that you give your permission for your application and associated documents to be shared with your Museum Development team. 

Don't forget that you can contact your Accreditation Advisor with any technical queries.
