Summary - Timely extent
1 week to get the bronze benchmarking form done, and a clarification meeting with us.
4-5 weeks later - new benchmarking report
1-2 weeks to review and select and describe at least three improvement areas and submit these to us and ESCA.
Minimum 1-3 weeks to prepare for review with experts
1-2 week after preparations the review itself.
M inimum 1 week you will receive a report you have to go through.
Overall, given that you have the capacity to keep this pace the total time extent will be 2-3 months to complete the certification process.
The tasks you have to do yourself will require at least a couple of weeks of work. We can help with advice & guidance that cuts this somewhat.
Many clusters does not follow up after the first benchmarking. We have therefore included a follow-up interview following the receipt of the report where we aim to ensure that you get started with the follow-up work towards the next certification and do not leave the improvement work until just before the certification expires.
