Satellite site means part of the Recognised Centre which operates from a location separate from the primary Recognised Centre and at which delivery and/or assessment of qualifications is undertaken.
If you are a centre delivering and/or assessing qualifications across satellite sites, whether in England or in countries outside of England*, you will need to tell us about the additional satellite sites you are using.
For all satellite sites, you will need to have a single Quality Assurance contact who is accountable for all delivery and quality assurance activities across all satellite sites. Our centre agreement terms and conditions apply equally to all satellite sites and the main site.
A serious quality issue found at any satellite site will potentially impact across all satellite sites and the main site.
If satellite sites act autonomously or wish to be treated as separate Centres, then separate centre recognition applications will be required.
Where there is a change in ownership or management control at a centre, we reserve the right to end centre approval and request that the centre submits a new centre recognition form, which will be treated as a new application and will be subject to the same quality assurance scrutiny.
*Please note, not all qualifications are available to be delivered outside England. Always check the qualification specification.
