Webinar: Quality assurance and the role of the IQA for apprenticeships

July 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 pm


Do you manage or conduct the internal quality assurance (IQA) of your apprenticeship provision?

If so, it’s vitally important to be focusing on the right things. Are your IQA activities solely focused on awarding body requirements, for example? Are you able to monitor the apprentice’s learning and progress effectively (particularly where there are no qualifications)? Is your role helping your teachers and trainers to prepare apprentices adequately for the gateway and end-point assessment?

On Thursday 28 July (10.00-11.15am), SDN and Mesma are teaming up to host an IQA webinar, taking you through:

  • The IQA role and the questions you should be asking
  • How to quality assure progress in the absence of qualifications
  • Practical examples of how IQA’s can contribute to preparing apprentices for end-point assessment
  • How you change and adapt your internal quality assurance processes so they are fit for purpose
  • A chance to share best practice with others

The webinar will be insightful and action-focused, equipping you with the knowledge, tools and resources to conduct your role as IQA effectively.

You can book onto the webinar for £65 (+VAT). This includes the live webinar (with Q&A).

If you cannot make the date, let us know and we will keep you updated on any new dates. This session is not recorded.
