TPAS Scotland Accreditation
We have a popular and long established product called TPAS Accreditation. It is a robust and structured process for assessing how well organisations involve tenants and residents.
TPAS accreditation is aimed at landlords, contractors and tenants’ organisations. The requirements for each type of organisation are different, although the way in which we assess submissions is the same.
Organisations are asked to complete a self-assessment framework, demonstrating how they meet certain competencies in resident involvement. TPAS then holds ‘focus group’ discussions with tenants, staff and other key stakeholders. The aim of these sessions is to test whether resident involvement is taking place as intended.
An assessment is completed by TPAS explaining whether organisations have passed or failed the required competencies. We also prepare a formal report, providing analysis, identifying gaps and making recommendations for improvement.
All our landlord accreditations are validated by an independent panel of trained volunteers. Landlord accreditation is awarded as bronze, silver or gold and successful organisations are accredited for 3 years.
