Accreditation: Detailed guidelines released

For those of you who are Accredited, or looking to become Accredited, the detailed guidelines for the new scheme have now been released on the Arts Council England website. These documents are available to download and read, and really get to grips with what is to be expected of you with the new scheme. The new scheme has been designed with your needs in mind, hopefully making the process as streamline and useful as possible.
