The vision for the Network of Science Centres is described in the Accreditation Framework.
Membership of the Network is voluntarily and is gained through a process of accreditation for a five-year period. Re-accreditation will then take place in a five-year cycle. A Member may at any time withdraw from the accredited Network.
In the Network the diversity of Science Centres is acknowledged with regard to their areas of specific focus, developmental stage, and resourcing.
The Network makes provision for the admission and management of ongoing membership of this diverse range of Science Centres.
The Network will use a developmental approach to support continuous improvement rather than compliance with minimum requirements.
