SIMS Accreditation Service - the process

Support team requirements

If you are a support team and are looking to become accredited you must meet the following criteria:

  • Your team has been operating for at least six months
  • You have a minimum of three support staff
  • You are supporting at least 40 schools with their use of SIMS

Support team accreditation service

This service is applicable to:

  • LA teams who wish to be accredited for the support of their own schools under their license
  • LA teams who wish to be accredited for the support of their own schools under their license and also schools they are supporting in other LAs (for which they are named as the FM Contractor on a valid facilities management agreement) or for the support of SIMS Direct customers
  • Third party companies who are named as the FM Contractor on a valid facilities management agreement with the relevant LA(s) and who wish to be accredited for those LAs' schools
  • Third party companies who wish to be accredited for the support of SIMS Direct customers.

If you succesfully become accredited with us your accreditation status will last for two years.

Teams that are third party companies who wish to undertake accreditation must first be a contracted SIMS support unit. For more information on how to become a SIMS support unit please email us.
