Free Mandatory Webinars for IQAs Coming Soon

Posted on 10th May 2019

Update: 13/06/2019

We would like to confirm that we are rescheduling the webinar that was planned for Wednesday 19th June 2019. Over the last few months, we can assure you that we have listened, consulted and listened again; and while we still have regulatory obligations that we cannot change, we can confirm that we are in the process of reviewing the quality assurance system to make it less burdensome and less administrative.

As a team, we want to help and support all our ATCs, just like we always try and do—please bear with us whilst we review the procedures and make and necessary changes.

We look forward to sharing more information shortly, plus look out for our new Safety Training Awards newsletter this summer.

Thank you for your continued support.

Safety Training Awards has scheduled two free mandatory webinars for Wednesday 15th May 2019 and Wednesday 19th June 2019 to assist centre co-ordinators, current internal quality assurers (IQAs) and those who are interested in becoming an IQA.

These webinars are mandatory for all IQAs to support them with maintaining their CPD. If you are unable to attend on the dates these webinars are scheduled for, recordings will be available on our website to view and participate in the tasks set out in the webinars. We are requesting that you still register against both webinars even if you are unable to watch them live. Failure to participate may result in IQA status being removed.

Hosted by Ellie Elliott, an experienced External Quality Assurer (EQA), these free webinars will cover the following topics:

Wednesday 15th May 2019 14:00–15:30

Roles and Responsibilities of an IQA

This will ensure an understanding of, and help support, all those who are carrying out internal quality assurance monitoring activities.

Preparation for Conducting IQA Monitoring Activities Within an ATC

Wednesday 19th June 2019 14:00–15:30
