Apprenticeships: Changing role of the IQA webinar

Do you manage the internal quality assurance (IQA) of your apprenticeship provision? If so, the way you carry out your role is likely to change, especially if delivering apprenticeship standards with no mandated qualifications.

In many cases, delivering apprenticeship standards will require you to rethink how you utilise your IQA resource. Are your IQA activities solely focused on awarding body requirements? Are you able to monitor the apprentice’s learning and progress effectively (particularly where there are no qualifications)? Is your role helping trainers to prepare apprentices adequately for the gateway and end-point assessment?


On Mon 14th October (12.30-1.30pm), SDN and Mesma are teaming up to host a repeat of our IQA webinar, taking you through:

  • The key changes to the IQA role and the questions you should be asking
  • How to quality assure progress in the absence of qualifications
  • Practical examples of how IQA’s can contribute to preparing apprentices for end-point assessment
  • How you change and adapt your internal quality assurance processes so they are fit for purpose

The webinar will be insightful and action-focused, equipping you with the knowledge, tools and resources to prepare for your future role in apprenticeships.

You can book onto the webinar for £55 (+VAT). This includes the live webinar (with Q&A), webinar recording, and supporting tools / resources.
