    Advance Information

    This workshop is designed to familiarise prospective Archive Service Accreditation applicants with the outlines of the scheme, the structure of the Standard, and the support available. Applicants should leave the session with confidence in how to plan their service’s response and having discussed some of the less familiar elements of the scheme.

    Please note that the venue is on the first floor. There is a small lift but there are three steps up to reach it.

    Before the day, participants should:

    • Visit the scheme homepage: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/accreditation

    • Check your service is eligible; this workshop is aimed at prospective applicants – though if you're not sure whether your service will apply, feel free to attend

    • Provisionally work out your service’s place on the scalability

    • Ideally, read the Standard, application form and supporting guidance. The workshop will focus on understanding and action planning, not reading the documents!

    On the day, participants should:

    • Bring a copy of the Standard (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documents/archives/archive-service-accreditation-standard-june-2014.pdf) and the application guidance (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documents/archives/archive-service-accreditation-guidance-2016.pdf)for reference
