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.
Hosted by Ellie Elliott, an experienced External Quality Assurer (EQA), these free webinars will cover the following topics:
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
To support the understanding of how to prepare for effective internal quality assurance monitoring activities within an ATC.

This will cover what evidence must be documented to make sure the IQA monitoring activities are valid, accurate, sufficient, consistent, reliable and effective.
To assist in understanding the regulatory requirements for IQA monitoring which supports and maintains the level of compliance for ATCs and the awarding organisation.
It is essential that IQAs maintain their CPD on an annual basis to support their IQA status with Safety Training Awards. Current IQAs will be expected to complete a workbook following each webinar to evidence their knowledge and understanding of internal quality assurance processes. Completed workbooks must be submitted to Safety Training Awards for assessment, and ½ CPD point will be awarded upon completion of each workbook.
