As an EQA you are centre facing (‘centre’ includes both our Approved Providers and Approved Trainers) with a focus on ensuring that all our centres remain compliant with our approval criteria, at both a centre and training programme level.
In this role, you will also spend time with our centres offering them information, advice and guidance on our approval and audit processes and requirements – before and after approval.
You will support continuous improvement by sharing best practice and sometimes working with centres on action or improvement plans. You will also have the opportunity to feed in to our own continuous improvement, whether at a scheme level, or relating to an aspect of our quality assurance or registration processing.
You will also work with centres to identify any additional opportunities such as other industry relevant schemes or endorsed training programmes.
You will have recent experience in working in the vocational education or training sector, ideally within an awarding or other professional body as an EQA, or a training provider as an IQA. You will already hold an existing qualification for EQA or IQA, and maybe also as a Trainer; you will be experienced at carrying out audits.
You demonstrate a high standard of interpersonal and communication skills – including the writing of comprehensive centre facing approval, audit and monitoring reports. As most of our information and date is held within our Quartz system, you will also need to have excellent IT literacy and skills.
