NTfW has been awarded grant funding from Qualifications Wales to roll out the Quality Matters events for all sectors (with the exception of health and social care and child care as this sector has previously benefitted from the training).
In collaboration with Qualifications Wales, NTfW will be coordinating a number of free, highly-focused workforce development events for quality managers, centre managers and internal quality assurers who work with competence-based qualifications throughout Wales.
These events, delivered previously by Qualifications Wales to support the health and social care and child care sector, will support the continuing professional development of the quality assurance community across all sectors (except HSC).
These are two day events aimed specifically at those in a quality assurance role. Attendees are expected to take part in both days. The first part of these two day events took place in October and November with the second workshops scheduled to take place in January and February 2019. These are designed as follow-up workshops and will continue the work from workshop 1. However, if you were unable to attend workshop 1 but would like to attend the second workshop, please get in touch and we can provide you with the pre-course work activities and the presentation slides to help you to prepare for the follow up session.
