The Quality Assurance System for Post-16 Education and Training Provision: Overarching Framework
The Quality Assurance System clarifies the roles and responsibilities of providers of post-16 education and training; local authorities; the Young People’s Learning Agency; the Skills Funding Agency; and other delivery partners in ensuring that learning programmes are of the highest quality. It takes account of how young people’s and adult learning will be managed and supported from 1 April 2010.
The Quality Assurance System describes the annual process for reviewing provider performance and sets out some of the evidence which may be taken into account during this process.
The Overarching Framework will be supported by further guidance, some of which is already available. A link to the Overarching Framework can be found here (PDF, 642 Kb) .
