Free Webinar – Bringing quality and compliance together for apprenticeships

September 28, 2023 @ 11:30 am 1:00 pm

We’re delighted to invite you to a 1.5 hour free webinar – open to all those involved in the management and delivery of apprenticeships. The session will be fast-paced, interactive and action-focused with chance to interact and ask questions.


In recent years, the priorities of the ESFA and Ofsted have become increasingly aligned. Whether it’s initial assessment, curriculum design, off-the-job training or achievement at end-point assessment – the link between compliance and quality has never been stronger.

That’s why we’re hosting this practical free webinar – to help you set your priorities for quality and compliance, understand what this means practically for your organisation and staff, and how both should work together.

Drawing from our work with over 1,000 providers – and hosted jointly with Louise Doyle (SDN’s quality lead) and by David Lockhart-Hawkins (SDN’s compliance lead) – this session will explore:

  • The top five compliance priorities for apprenticeships
  • The top five quality priorities for apprenticeships
  • How these priorities overlap and relate to each other
  • Practical steps you can take to efficiently and effectively deliver on these priorities in your role and organisation

Lou is CEO of Mesma and SDN’s quality and inspection specialist. Louise has worked with hundreds of apprenticeship providers across the country to review and improve their provision.

David, SDN’s compliance expert, has over 20 years experience working with apprenticeship providers. His in-depth understanding compliance, alongside curriculum design and quality, gives him a unique insight into how it all fits together.
