QA offer first class services associated with the delivery of accredited training and qualifications.
An apprenticeship is when an individual works and gains new qualifications and skills at the same time.
As an apprentice, you will be working in a real job where you will be employed by a company, have a contract of employment, get paid a salary and be entitled to all of the statutory benefits.
Accredited Assessment Centre
We manage on behalf of clients, all or some of the key components of an ‘approved assessment centre’ delivering specialist training and related qualifications through bespoke strategic partnerships.
1. Specialist Training
QA Associates are experienced providers of ‘accredited’ specialist training in short courses of one or two days or up to one year Apprenticeships. We work with employers to develop professional development training programmes that match staff training need.
2. Register Learners for a Qualification
Ninety five percent of classroom-based learners with QA Associates undertake a formal accredited qualification as part of their training. We use one of three Awarding Bodies to give us the most appropriate qualification choice for our clients and their learners.
3. Conduct Assessment
Assessment is mandatory on all our courses in the form of either short tests, examinations, assignments or interviews as we seek to ensure that learners have learnt about the subject that their employer has sent them on.
5. Internal Quality Assurance (IQA)
We offer internal quality assurance services to our clients. IQA plays a vitally important role in achieving and maintaining reliable assessment practice and applies irrespective of the medium through which we provide access to qualifications.
6. Certify Learners
Our Administrators are responsible for the certification of learners with the Awarding Body and will operate closely with the Quality Manager to ensure that mistakes and errors are avoided by use of a double-checking process.
7. Design of Customised Qualifications
QA Associates design and develop customised qualifications to meet the needs of our clients.
We offer a design service for companies, organisations and institutions that seek National accreditation for the training programmes that they deliver to their staff or in the case of training providers, that they offer to their customers.
