Quality Matters

Qualifications Wales, in collaboration with Social Care Wales, are providing a number of free highly-focused workforce development events for quality managers, centre managers and internal quality assurers who work within health and social care (including childcare and play) competence-based qualifications throughout Wales.

These events will support the continuing professional development of the quality assurance community within the health and social care (including childcare and play) sector.

These are two day events aimed specifically at those in a quality assurance role. Day one takes place in November/December 2017 with day two taking place in February/March 2018.

Attendees are expected to take part in both days, please ensure that you book for both.

The events will be interactive, with opportunities for attendees to explore:

  • Quality Control v Quality Assurance

  • Principles and practices of Quality Assurance

  • Planning and implementing Quality Assurance

  • Evaluating Quality Assurance

  • Providing feedback and supporting centre improvements


You will also have an opportunity to hear from City and Guilds and WJEC, the new awarding body consortia contracted to deliver the new suite of health and social care qualifications in 2019.

Delegates will be able to assess their current practice and identify improvements in order to deliver consistent and effective quality assurance of competence-based qualifications.

We would encourage each centre to book up to three places on the events, so that colleagues can work together to agree and implement actions.

You will need to bring copies of your centre’s quality management plan and internal quality assurance documentation as a basis for discussion in group activities.

CPD accreditation will be available by means of an open badge awarded by Social Care Wales.
