From education to employment


A new self-assessment ‘Develop’ framework will enable people to identify individual bespoke pre-training requirements ahead of QA specialists Mesma’s workplace quality management and continuous improvement training seminars, which start in 2018.

Running from January to March 2018, the six-part ‘Developing Quality Improvement Strategies in Further Education and Skills’ training is aimed at those who have quality responsibilities as part of their role but want to boost their professional skills.

The pre-assessment ‘Develop’ capability will enable delegates to write and monitor their own pre-course CPD plan, download their reports, and development plans as well as gain access to course related material.

The course will be delivered across six sessions, starting with an introduction to quality management covering key principles, methodologies and how quality can improve the effectiveness of an organisation.

Other sessions will include leading and implementing change, advice on choosing quality management tools and guidance on how to write a self-assessment plan. Techniques for developing and sustaining continuous improvement plans and preparing an organisation for an Ofsted inspection, will also be covered.

Mesma’s director Carole Loader said: “We have designed the webinar for people who want to advance their understanding of quality management and continuous improvement.

“The ‘Develop’ feature offers individual self-assessment capabilities and the chance for people to better understand what will be involved. Ultimately, this will provide a better all round learning experience while simultaneously stretching people in a beneficial way.”

 The course is £250 + VAT, while an individual webinar costs £45 + VAT. Delegates who book onto the full series will be eligible to use ‘Develop’ for a six month complimentary access.
