This entity records information about course accreditation.

Applicable toEngland Northern Ireland Scotland Wales

All KISCourses where applicable and KISCourse.KISTYPE = 1 or 2.


This entity records the professional accreditations for the course

In all cases the accrediting body and the type of accreditation awarded should be recorded in Accreditation.ACCTYPE.

This entity must not be returned where KISCourse.KISTYPE = 3.

This entity must not be reported for courses that do not have professional accreditation. If an accreditation has not yet been granted, it should not be included.

The XML structure allows for up to 10 accreditations to be recorded for a single KIS Course.

If accreditation is at the institution rather than course level, provided accreditation applies to all courses offered by the provider it should be recorded on every KIS.

Any accreditation that a course currently has that will potentially apply to 2017/18 entrants should be included in the KIS, even if the accreditation will need renewal. An existing accreditation should only be excluded if it will expire and there are no plans to renew it.
