Section 4. Ensuring quality provision

Quality improvement includes:

  • self-assessment reports that are required for all publicly-funded learning providers and should be active and ongoing; they are essential to maintaining and improving quality
  • a coherent programme for observation of teaching and learning, with appropriate professional development opportunities available
  • ensuring that quality improvement includes the views of all learners through established feedback mechanisms, such as satisfaction surveys.

‘A strategic focus on the quality assurance of provision … (leads) … directly to quality improvement.’(Stubbing Court Training Ltd)

Integrating a continuous process of quality improvement is vital.
