Quality Process

Gateway Qualifications External Quality Assurers (EQAs) monitor Recognised Centres through a risk based systems approach, which allows appropriate level of support to be provided to Centres.

Once you are a Recognised Centre, our EQAs will guide you through the process and act as a critical friend to ensure that quality management systems are in place to underpin course delivery.

Systems will vary between centres according to what is appropriate in the particular situation. Practices that work in a large centre will not necessarily work in a small one;  an employer-based provider may have different requirements from a college. Whatever the situation,

Two key requirements:

  • There must be an appropriate system in place.
  • There must be evidence that it is implemented effectively.

Quality management system’ is an umbrella term that includes a number of key aspects of the way that a centre is run.

This will include:

  • Assessment practice
  • Internal Quality Assurance
