What's the application process like?

1. Check your eligibility

Complete the eligibility quiz to see whether it’s worth submitting a full application.


2. Join our taster session

We will carry out two taster sessions, to help you find out more about the programme and whether it’s a perfect fit for you.


3. Complete full application

Once you’ve submitted the eligibility quiz, you’ll be invited to complete a full application. We’ll ask a few questions about your organisation, intervention and your interest in Scale Accelerator.

Please note: you are able to save your progress on the application form, so you can start completing it straight away.

4. Phone call

Once your are shortlisted, you will be asked for a few extra bits of information.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to follow-up calls in February 2022. This is an opportunity for us to dig a bit deeper into what you need from the programme and check we are the right fit for one another.

The calls should include two key people from your organisation, including the CEO, or – in a large organisation – a member of your leadership team.

5. Additional info

For the Expert Consultancy route, before confirming our final selection, we’ll have two short conversations with your external partners (e.g. funder; commissioner). This will help us verify what you said in your application, and make sure that you have the foundations needed to scale in place.
