Sponsorship

  • The online application form requires candidates to enter a sponsor’s name and email address. Please make sure that the sponsor’s email address is correct. If however you realise that you have entered your sponsor's details incorrectly, or you need to arrange for a different sponsor, then you can change your sponsor's details by logging in and re-opening the CASC Application Form. Please note only one sponsor is required for the CASC. This applies to all candidates including overseas candidates.
  • If the sponsor does not complete the authorisation and the candidate does not complete the application and payment within the application period then they will not be entered into the CASC examination. The College does not accept responsibility for delays or computer failures and no late or incomplete applications will not be accepted under any circumstances.
  • Sponsors will be sent an email with a link to authorise the candidate’s application. Sponsors must ensure that the candidate has provided evidence that they meet the eligibility requirements to sit the CASC examination. Candidates must provide full details of their current post when completing the Online Application Form or the link that the sponsor is sent will not work.
  • Candidates will receive a confirmation email once the sponsor has authorised the application and will be required to complete their application and proceed to payment.
