We are extremely proud of the latest quality review from Pearson. Below is the Inspectors report from our annual quality audit July 2017
Centre Recognition Criteria:
“All of the team are occupationally competent and professionally qualified. Assessment practice is good with clear feedback to learners. Internal verification is extensive with virtually every portfolio verified. Professional development has recently concentrated on updating assessors and verifiers on proposed changes to standards, sources of e-learning and the topics covered in standardisation: feedback and plagiarism. The centre has developed its own VLE in order to make additional resources available to learners”.
Assessment and Verification:
“The first contact for learners is with centre management and the advice given is helpful and detailed. All learners are self-funded adult learners who have the basic qualifications needed for teaching (and a large proportion are graduates) so little additional support is needed for numeracy and literacy.
Support for learners is excellent – online and by telephone and the learners interviewed were very enthusiastic about the promptness and level of support”.
“All staff are fully qualified and use all appropriate assessment tools, particularly since the learners are geographically widespread. Assessment is carefully planned to meet the needs of individual learners and internal verification is virtually one hundred percent of the results forming the basis of subsequent meetings.
All documentation is computerised, including learner work, assessor feedback and internal verification and is, therefore, always available for audit purposes. As the learners are self-funded, data analysis is not necessary for quality audits and is used only to plan centre provision.
Learners are encouraged to give feedback after assessments and the centre uses Survey Monkey for more formal feedback the results showing that over 90% of learners are extremely satisfied with their learning experience”.
